Hello English world!
I am back with some prompts for the Trinity examination ISE II. The last time I published materials for ISE II was more than over a year ago with the ISE II Conversation Phase Activity which was (and still is) my most popular post.
This time, I am giving you 10 prompts that you can use with your students to practice the interactive phase of the ISE II examination! Yay! Exciting!
In case you are not familiar with this activity, the examiner and the candidate role play a scenario. The candidate is the one in charge of keeping the conversation going. To do so, he/she has to ask as many questions as possible, assess the situation and try to give advice or a solution.
Let’s not waste time and get down to it!
Your teacher has asked you to interview people with original hobbies. You friend’s sister is the perfect candidate. However she is very shy. Try to convince your friend to introduce you to her.
Your friend has just lost her work phone but was expecting an extremely important phone call from a client. She doesn’t know what to do.
You take your friend to the airport to get a flight home for Christmas but due to traffic they miss their plane. Help them find a solution.
Your friend at university is having a change of heart regarding their study choice. She is considering dropping everything and having a go at a career in writing. She asks for advice.
Your friend tells you that their partner is angry at them. They don’t know why nor what to do.
Your friend’s sister is getting married this weekend. They have to write a speech but are terrified of speaking in public.
Your friend wants to buy a new car but his wife prefers a different model.
Your friend has been offered two jobs. One is boring and well paid, the other one is interesting yet badly paid.
Your friend has been invited to a party by her mother-in-law but they don’t get along very well. She is not sure what to do.
Your colleague has an important presentation in 30 minutes but has just spilled coffee all over their shirt.
I also recommend that you give your students prompts they can relate to. One easy way to do so, is to ask your students to actually make the prompts themselves. They can use their own experience to create the problems, which will make it easier when it comes to finding solutions to the problems and giving advice.
I hope you appreciate the prompts and feel free to write some more in the comment section!
That’s it for today guys…Keep on learning! Xoxo
