Conversing: Dialogue Variations

Level: Intermediate

Skill: Conversing

Purpose: To learn how the script for a communication situation changes when one of the variables changes.

Goal: To be able to participate appropriately in communication situations when circumstances change.

What  to Do:

This technique is built on the Role Play technique. You follow the general steps given for that, except that you change one of the factors, for example, the time of day, the age or status or gender of the other participant, or the formality of the occasion.  Notice how the script changes and play your role appropriately. It might help to ask two LHs to role-play the different situations. Be sure to make recordings and to keep a record of what factors changed in the communication situation for each recording.
