These negotiation role plays for two learners aim to
practise the language of negotiations in a real-life
situation. The negotiation is divided into different
parts. For each part, there are a number of options.
According to the option agreed upon by the two
negotiators, points are awarded. The points are not
equally distributed to encourage the learners to
prioritise different things. Consequently, the
negotiation should not get 'stuck'. It is therefore
necessary for each learner, before the negotiation
begins, to decide which options he would like to bargain
for and which options he can concede to the other person.
The emphasis is on a win-win situation as both learners
can attain their objective of getting a certain number of
employer versus employee.
This is a card game where the learners will have to
negotiate with each other in order to exchange cards.
Points are awarded for collecting sets of cards so
learners will be obliged to negotiate if they want a
chance of winning. There are no rules as to what can be
negotiated with what. Learners decide themselves what
they are prepared to concede to acquire other cards. A
time limit should be given to the game. See the sheet for
details on the game.
