This reading contains a humorous scene from a fictitious soap opera in which an attractive firefighter loses all his luxurious long hair in a fire!
All the characters are introduced by name and character. The script includes parts for four people and is followed by a glossary of new vocabulary. This reading is in the present tense.
On the second page there are some true false reading comprehension questions and students are encouraged to write a continuation of the scene! This can be done for homework or in class, alone or in pairs.
Activity idea: put students in groups of two or four to read the script. Once they have read the script, have students translate it. Students may then continue the storyline in different ways by writing their own continuation to the story! These new scripts may be performed for the class or handed in for homework.
