We are the actors/actresses!
Select some scenes of famous movies.Students should work in groups of about 5 students. Each group picks a tape, go to a different room, watch the scene (about 3 minutes) and then they need to role play it. They don't need to understand 100% of what was said, they can adapt the dialogues, or even create something else based on it. After 20 minutes all the students present their "plays" and they choose the best performance( you can even choose the best actor, actress, etc.) . We have done this activity mixing students from different levels and classes (what we call integration activity) and even the shy students performed very well.
