This worksheet role plays interviews. It is to be used in conjunction with the Random Fake ID Generator


Students use the form to 1) interview the teacher who has a fake ID.   2) interview each other, each student having a fake ID. 


Might lead into a conversation about fake IDs and all sorts of social/legal issues. Gets students talking and using indirect questions:  Could you please tell me....?    May I know ....... ?


SeeLessons in a Can # 11 for more like this. 

Here are the karaoke dialogues with cloze (words missing) versions - you'll need the player to play them.
Here are the blank dialogues.  One person's part is missing and students try to fill in the rest.   Get the videos HERE.

All the dialogues with links to the videos.
