    I bought this book to use as a supplement in my speaking skills class I wanted to try doing some role plays and other activities that would foster spontaneous practice The Drama book is helping me with that, and so far, I ve enjoyed doing the lessons For example, I started with a pronunciation game where students work on saying common utterances like, That s ridiculous, or What happened with stress emphasis and different attitudes That was a fun ice breaker Then we did role plays where students had to act out a situation in which they had different goals They actually used some of the expressions from the previous exercise, which felt good The role plays also led to an interesting discussion of how people sometimes say what they mean but sometimes they don t I haven t tried any of the sketches and scripts yet, but they seem to include models of natural dialog, and I appreciate that they are often paired with very specific language learning activities All in all, there s a lot of interesting and original material here, and I expect to be exploring the different options for a long time
