This page has a number of ideas for role play - a vital activity in the EAL classroom. Role play stimulates a child’s imagination, enhancing their social development and promoting important skills such as listening, team work and co-operation. Each role play idea is designed to reflect good values and morals. This is the perfect opportunity for the students to be creative – they have to create a dialogue and structure on the spot. Role play helps students prepare for future situations, giving them the skills needed to communicate outside of the classroom.
