|Aim||To practise indirect questions, asking for information and professions.|
|Activity||Students roleplay situations.|
|Preparation||Copy enough pairs of cards for the number of pairs in your class.|
|What do I do?||1. Divide students into two groups. Give each student in one group a “profession” card and each student in the other group a problem card.
2. Sit students with “job” cards around the room, in their shops.
3. Students with “problem” cards must go from shop to shop, asking (indirect) questions until they find someone who can help them with their problem.
4. When students have found the person who can help, they should continue asking questions to get the information on their card.
5. Pairs repeat their roleplays for the class.
