    This sounds like course work in a class on communication, especially when considered with your other question. What does your text book say?

    Hi

    It depends on the level of the students. One of the most important communicative activities in an English class is using games.
    Here are some tips:
    Belisle-E-mail Activities in the ESL Writing Class (I-TESL-J)
    ESL Speaking Lesson Plans, worksheets, templates, games, ideas
    Advanced ESL speaking activities
    Houghton Mifflin College - Login/Registration

    Discussion starters
    In a given exercise in a unit, students are often told to work in pairs or small groups. Student A will be told to look at one communication activity while student B will be told to look at another communication activity. In this way, the students hold different pieces of information which only they know and which they must share verbally with their partner. Since the two pieces of information are not on the same page or even near each other in the text, the students must talk to their partners to complete the given language task.
    It is essential that students understand the whole activity before teachers have students do the communication activities. The teacher should give an overview of the exercise, explain how the communication task will work, divide the class into pairs or groups as the exercise says, and then walk around the room to help any students who might still have questions.
    Instructors will need to use alternative teaching methods.

    Regards
