Pre-activity: The teacher should have taught students about prepositions.
Activity:In pairs, students are required to write a dialogue of about 12-15 exchanges based on an invitation card given by the teacher.
Sample invitation card:
INVITATION TO EXECS BUSINESS ANNUAL DINNER
DATE: 24 JUNE 2001
PLACE:PALOMA BALLROOM, DE PALMA HOTEL
TIME: 7.30 AM
Allow about half an hour to prepare the text and about 3 minutes to present it in class. Ask students to be as creative as possible.
Students get to practice prepositions as well as Wh-questions. I find that my students enjoying themselves while pretending to invite their friends to the annual dinner.
