FREEDOM OF CHOICE
For your third interactive task we are offering you some choices. You should aim to speak for 6-8 minutes:
- · ‘Twenty Questions’ – you nominate an English topic (language or culture) that you feel you could answer questions on. Eg: English Football Hooliganism, Shakespeare, etc. Give the topic to your teacher and she will prepare 20 questions for you to answer and discuss.
- · ‘Soapbox speech’ – share your opinions about the English speaking world (or some aspect of it). Then be prepared to defend your ideas and opinions. Eg: Americans are mono-cultural and mono-lingual.
- · ‘Be the Teacher’ – give a demonstration or instructions on how to do something that is new and unknown to the rest of the class? Eg: Become an Australian citizen. Learn to speak like a native English speaker. How to speed read?
- · ‘One-on-One’ – go head to head with another Diploma student where you debate an issue (no team mates this time only you and your wits!). You and your opponent would agree on a topic with your teacher and then decide which position you would take.
- · ‘Be the Critic’ – select an English text and critically review it. You could discuss the film adaptation of an English novel/play?? Eg: Clueless as a version of ‘Emma’.
- · ‘Be an Activist’ – try and persuade the rest of the class to do something. Eg: register to vote, get a legal driver’s license, sign a petition that requests the Government make learning English compulsory.
