WRITING ROLE PLAYS These role plays are four part writing role plays for two learners. Learner A looks at his role and writes an e-mail to learner B. Learner B looks at his role and the message he has just received from A and replies. Learner A does the same with B's reply and role number two. Learner B completes the role play with his second role and A's reply.

E-mail exchange sheet. Use this exchange sheet for the four part writing role plays. Make sure, if you feel it is necessary for your students, to get them to write a draft before writing their message on the sheet.

Role play one. A visiting colleague.

Role play two. A meeting for European counterparts.

Three faxes for the sales department. A pair work or small group activity. To complete this activity, learners will need to be able to recognise and sort out common writing expressions. Then, using these expressions, they will write three faxes.

Mr Smith's disastrous and business trip. A pair work or small group activity in which the learners will write an account of Mr Smith's business trip. To help them to do this, they will first answer some questions. The questions are designed to help them to imagine the problems he had and can be answered in different ways.

Writing questionnaire. A pair work or small group activity. The learners must write the questionnaire about writing habits before answering it themselves. By writing the questionnaire themselves, learners will be made more aware about good writing habits. You may find it interesting to get one group to write out the questions for the questionnaire and another to write out the evaluation remarks. Then both groups can answer the questionnaire and compare results.
