* , - , : Youve mentioned it already but could you repeat it, please


Task 2 (3-4 minutes)
You are discussing what special event to organize during the Arts Week. These are your ideas about each option:

  + -
A picture exhibition - I think everyone likes to draw since childhood. So this idea may appeal to our friends. - I dont really like this idea. It seems childish to me.
- It takes a lot of time first to collect the pictures then to place them on the wall.
A musical - We could perform a piece from a famous musical. They are very popular now. - The idea is not bad, but it requires many peopleto be involved, plus time to rehearse.
- Costumes may become a problem.
A disco - I am in favour of this idea. We could invite some pop group and dance to live music. - I think we all are bored to death with school discos.
- Not everyone likes to dance.
A photo competition - A fresh idea. I am sure that everyone has got an album with exciting pictures that will be interesting to look at. - I am not sure that this idea will interest our schoolmates.
- Its difficult to compare photos of different genres.

Note: Make sure all the options have been discussed.
When discussing each option first use the information that is contrary to what the student says. You may choose to make use of some ideas only.
Do not speak first all the time but ask the student what s/he thinks about the options.
Invite the student to come up with her/his suggestions, especially if s/he readily agrees with the things you say. If the student says all the time, What do you think about it? without expressing her / his own opinion, say, Sorry, I dont know. or Im not sure. How do you feel about it?


The student is expected to demonstrate her / his ability to:

initiate and maintain conversation:
? explain the situation
? come up with suggestions
? give good reasons
? find out the partners attitudes
? invite the partner to come up with suggestions
? agree or disagree with her / his partners opinion
reach an agreement by taking into account the partners attitudes.
