Everyday English Social Expressions mimes

New Headway Pre-Intermediate Unit 12 page 101

Student A

Do a mime to represent the expressions in one of the boxes below. Give five points to the person who guesses first, and one more point to anyone who can think of another way of saying exactly the same thing (for example, the other expressions in the same box)

 Excuse me/ Can I get past?  Oh, what a pity/ That’s a shame/ I’m sorry to hear that  That’s right/ That’s correct  Okay/ All right
 Hurry up/ You’re late  Just a minute/ Just a moment/ Just a second/ Hang on  Time’s up/ Stop talking  Time out/ Let’s take a break

Do you know any cultural differences in these kinds of gestures in different countries?
