This role-play worksheet, for example, with its fun, fast-paced structure, gives students the chance to try out different roles in a short period of time.

Role-plays are an excellent way to get students interacting with one another and practicing target vocabulary using real life scenarios. Role-play lessons allow students to see and experience how English can be used outside the classroom, can help build student confidence, and give outgoing students or students who perform poorly on exams the chance to shine while challenging quieter, more reserved students to speak up.
