Students are led through a series of activities to create profiles for imaginary characters who live in the same neighbourhood. The lesson then brings these characters together at a neighbourhood party, where students can practice asking and answering simple questions about work, family, hobbies and so on.
As well as developing spoken fluency, there are opportunities to expand vocabulary (personality adjectives) and some useful questions for making small talk.
- To develop a set of adjectives to describe personality
- To raise awareness of what kind of questions are socially acceptable
- To teach a set of useful ‘small talk’ questions
- To encourage students to be creative and imaginative
- To build spoken fluency
