Rewrite The Conversation

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Well, I'd like to suggest an activity which I use from time to time at the lessons with my University students - future psychologists. I take an episode of any popular Russian comedy with the conversation between two (or more) characters. It's more interesting if this episode is quite familiar to everyone. The class is devided into teams. And I ask them to rewrite the conversation. The s tudents are asked to create a new situation (e.g. A Visit to the Psychiatrist, even the heroes of the film are lovers), or to use the particular grammar or vocabulary. Then the students resound the episode. We listen to all the versions and
discuss,which one is more unexpected, correct etc. My students enjoy it!
