Recount a childhood memory in a foreign language to support the learning process.
Lay the Dialoogle picture cards on the floor.
Ask all participants to choose a card that relates to the topic of the conversation, e.g. a favourite childhood memory, favourite holiday or their first boyfriend/girlfriend.
Ask the participants to pair up and remain standing.
The participants take turns telling their story to their partner in the foreign language. The teacher circulates among the pairs and serves as a live dictionary. Use no more than 1.5 minutes for this part of the exercise. When both participants have finished telling their story, ask them to hold up their card to signal that they are ready to begin a new dialogue.
Form new pairs and repeat the exercise until almost all participants have conversed with each other about their experiences.
