Turn taking roleplays

Your partner will choose one of the cards below and do that thing during the communicative activity that your teacher gives you. Try to guess what your partner is doing. 

Try to get your partner speaking more than you do

Try to speak as much as possible

Try to keep the time each person (including yourself) speaks exactly equal

Try to change topics as much as possible

Try to keep to the same topic for as long as possible

React as much as possible to what your partner says (without interrupting)

Interrupt even when you aren’t exactly sure what you are going to say

Politely reject your partner’s attempts to interrupt as much as possible

Work together to brainstorm phrases to do each of the things above

Can you also use gestures to help with turn taking?
