Skills: Interpersonal Speaking
This is a small, half-sheet "entrevista" in which students walk around the room and ask and answer each other when their birthday is. This can be translated and used in other languages, too. This activity takes about 15 minutes. After the activity is over, it is helpful to ask the students about the people they interviewed. Since they don't know yet how to talk about someone else, it is helpful to write a format on the board to help them discuss someone else. This is also a good pre-introduction to talking about someone else, even though it's not yet a learning target.
