Language Registers

Do you speak to your parents the same way you speak to your friends? The differences between formal and informal language are highlighted in this exercise. Groups are asked to select a scenario and script different dialogues that might occur between a teen and a teacher, parent, friend, stranger, clerk, or  scientist. As a closing activity, groups might act out their dialogues.
