Adaptable, humourous, easy to put together and fun. Many ESL pupils have found these skits fun, become more confident speaking English and enjoyed the learning process. The skits cover common vocabulary themes and grammar and allow for speaking opportunities in life-like meaningful contexts. Ideal for small groups, one to one with private tutors or use with your own children. Every skit is adaptable to any number of children. Scripts are written for ESL beginners with examples of alternatives provided to show how easy it is to adapt them and make them more complex for intermediate levels. The age bracket suggested is from 6 to 12. Some skits are possible with ages 4 and 5 though it takes much longer to prepare. Here is what other teachers have reported on using the plays and skits in this book: The kids asked to do it again: I did that play (Ready Steady go!) with my children's class yesterday evening and it worked really well. They absolutely loved it and I wished I'd taken my camera as, by the end of the lesson, they were all sitting in their pretend car with a fine array of ski hats, sunglasses, umbrellas, over-sized gloves, etc. They looked like film stars! Anyway, they've asked to do it again next week so a sure sign that they enjoyed themselves. Miranda Goodwin, France Since discovering your materials I enjoy the planning...and love the teaching. You use the fun approach I believe in through the theatre work I have done, and you have given me the confidence to know it can be applied to language learning for this age group. The kids love it and so do the parents! Joanna Simm, France The children in my beginners English class had such fun doing your skit 'Ready Steady Go!' They were begging me for a skit. 'The Robot' was perfect and so simple to do. It really helped the kids build confidence in their ability to speak English. Thanks for making us look good! Becky Good, Battambang, Cambodia Whenever you have any more ideas be sure to let me know. The stories are fantastic, the games are great and the plays are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for making my classes work so well. Lisa Brownlow in Spain I just wanted to let you know that the plays were a great success and I intend to keep having fun with them. Each of my classes put the play on for the school and the parents! Thank you for your great ideas. Michele Hain, Germany Just wanted to let you know how I went with my 1st play girls will be girls and boys will be boys!!!! It was great and the kids loved it. I really got them to ham it up when they said "Hey girls."They laughed and laughed they managed the vocab great and I knew it would work as I had taught them the vocab previously. It's amazing to see the confidence it builds in them. At the end of one lesson I had one little girl come up to me and say ?Miss Cathy, I am a dancer? and she showed me some wonderful dance moves.

"The researcher's belief in the communicative approach to teaching language led him to research how instruction can be arranged to bring about low-level / low-literacy students' success with a communicative, meaningful role play task. Often low-level learners struggle with how to complete communicative activities. In a three week unit, the
