Role play


Initiative = higher grades! If you want to introduce another related item, do so. In the above assessments, you could compare what you've seen in France to Scotland. This would let you express your own opinions and show off a new area of language.

Another way to show initiative and take control of the situation is to ask questions. If you don't, the 'conversation' can often sound more like an interview!

Listen to this audio clip for role-play at the doctors practice.
