Learners demonstrate communication skills in speaking and listening by introducing another student to the class. Working in pairs, classmates interview each other. During the 10-minute sessions, they listen, take notes on an index card, and then change places and reverse the process. Finally, each pupil presents his/her partner to the class. Consider having pairs create an illustrated poster based on interview notes, adding a photo, and posting these visuals around the room. A great beginning-of-the-year activity.
