Now seat the students in pairs one driver and one passenger. The driver sits in front of and to one side of the passenger as if in a taxi.

This can be used to practice:
For the taxi driver
1 Personal information- Where are you from? What languages do you speak? Are you married?

2 Present perfect: Have you been to our country before? Have you seen...? Have you read about...? Have you tried (food etc)? Have you heard about (recent event)?

3 Suggestions: Why don`t you visit... you should see... You could go to...

and for the passenger
4 Imperatives: Look out! Mind that lorry! Keep your eye on the road! etc.
