ROLEPLAYS AND CONVERSATIONAL ACTIVITIES

 

 

                                              Role-play is any speaking activity when you either put yourself into somebody else’s shoes, or when you stay in your own shoes but put yourself into an imaginary situation! Imaginary people – The joy of role-play is that students can ‘become’ anyone they like for a short time.

For example

                                    If you are the Prime Minister Of India, What Will Be Your Short And Long Time Goals?

 

The answer for that would be,

                    If I were the PM of India, my short term goals are,

 

                   (a) giving first priority to agriculture as it stands the backbone for our nation and in recent times this field is not been properly prioritized.

                   (b) reducing the cost of living by managing the imports and export trade.

                   (c) A balance must be kept so that the prices of basic amenities should not increase.

                   (d) Cut down unwanted taxations to benefit trade. Etc

Like this the role-play concept works.
