Lesson Plan Text

Emailing roleplays

Roleplay email exchanges from below, saying exactly what you would write in your email. 
Continue each exchange until it comes to a natural end. The person who picked the card 
should take the role written on it, but both people can see it. 

Get back in touch with someone you haven’t contacted for a long time, e.g. an ex-boss,

university professor or friend from primary school.

Introduce yourself to someone who has no idea who you are and request something.

You want to delay the thing that your partner is requesting as long as possible.

Ask for some private information about someone.

Ask for special permission to do something that usually isn’t allowed.

Ask for feedback on a new rule

Offer to do something, then change your mind when you get a positive reply.

Try to fix a time to meet (for business or social purposes) as soon as possible, using your

real schedule to say when you aren’t available.

Complain about something that your partner is responsible for. 

Try to thank your partner more than they thank you.

Try to apologise to your partner more than they apologise to you.

Politely decline all your partner’s invitations

Confirm things about your partner’s email before answering their questions.
