    verbs that collocate with 'roleplay'

    Hello,

    I'd appreciate it if somebody could tell me if the following verbs collocate with 'roleplay' (as a classroom activity):

    do a roleplay
    act out a roleplay
    perform a roleplay

    Many thanks.

    I'd use "do".

    I agree. "Do" is the simplest, but you can use those others too.

    Role-play is also a verb. You can just say "We are going to role-play" or "We will role-play the dialogues learned in Unit2" or whatever.

    I would use "role-play" as a verb.

    If forced to use some other verb, I would use "act out."
