Paper and pens


Learners take different roles for providing advice to others and produce a short role-play.

1.Each one of the learners have to think of a situation in which they need advice.

2.Then work in groups of three with the following roles:

−Student 1: who has the problem

−Student 2: practices giving good advice

−Student 3: shows no care neither provides advice

Each group need to act out 3 different situations: After playing their respective roles, Student 1, 2 and 3 rotate and switch roles. In total, each group works with 3 different problems and produces 3 role plays.

  1. Out of the 3 role plays, each group chooses one of those and represents it to the rest of the class.
  • Which role-play did you like the most? Why?
  • What character did you like the most? Why?
  • What character did you dislike the most? Why?
  • Let’s review: what do we need to take into consideration while providing advice to others?

Mix age groups and compare their advices. Younger generations can learn from the wisdom of the elder ones.
