Activity: 2

Students role play in groups according to the scenario on Tasksheet 2. A useful prop for this role play activity is a microphone. Microphones can be made from leftover cardboard tubes cut in half, with a ball of paper stuck in one end to create the shape of a studio mike.
Students form groups and choose an overseas city. The teacher can play the reporter in the studio as a rehearsal, then students in each group can take on that role. Another student plays the reporter on location in that city and the others can be local 'people in the street'.

だれががいこくのリポーターをしますか。 -Who will be the overseas reporter?
