Ice-breaking activity that could be done at the start of the course. Materials include some Powerpoint revision slides (greetings, alphabet, role-play)together with printable cards and cut-out dialogue. Suggested approach: 1 Teacher elicit and revise vocabulary with slides (greetings and alpabet) in plenary. 2 Students unjumble the dialogue in pairs (with cut-out cards), then teacher show slide for correction. 3 Tutor to give each student a name card. Students to get up and go around the class using the dialogue to find their partner. eg Roméo looks for Juliette, Posh for Beckam... Possible follow-on activity would be for students to introduce themselves and spell their own name.
