This exercise is good for A1-B1 levels. It is best in one of the first lessons.
- After introducing phrases to introduce oneself (if necessary) and reviewing question forms, tell the learners they are going to introduce themselves to each other. Give them 1-2 minutes to do this.
- Then, tell them that they are going to introduce themselves to a new person in the class. However, this time they will use the identity of person they just spoke to.
- Repeat a third time, having them swap their identity again.
- Finally, have the learners return to their seats and introduce the “real” people to each other by eliciting information from the group. Ask: Who is this (pointing to the first person)? Establish the correct name and then: What can you tell me about X? And allow the person to correct any misinformation.
1-1: This can not be used for 1-1 training.
