    Default information gap activity

    Can you help me with this question please? Thank you, Chanan

    2. Devise an information Gap activity where over the phone one student describes a used car he wants to sell. Another student, having seen an ad in the paper about the car, calls asking for more information about the car. Each wants to strike the best deal.

    Are you asking about the phrase information Gap activity, chanan? If so, I think the question just uses that expression to expose you to it. In this context, where the information gap is explained in the description of the exercise, the question might as well be:
    Devise an activity where over the phone one student describes a used car he wants to sell. Another student, having seen an ad in the paper about the car, calls asking for more information about the car. Each wants to strike the best deal.
    [This is an Information Gap Activity: resources you need to provide would be (for the seller) a description of the car and an asking price, and (for the potential buyer) text of the ad, a list of needs, preferences, available money etc - you need a pair of buyer/seller cards for each pair in your class.]

    What level are the students and how much information might they need for, say, the description of the car?
