Take one thing to represent each person and act out moving around the park having conversations as you go, e.g. “This looks too scary” “Oh, come on. It’ll be fun!”

Read out the similar conversation below

Alex: Okay, what do we want to do now?

Lucy: I want to go on the Katanga Canyon. I like water rides.

Alex: Mm, I don’t mind going on them but they’re not very exciting. In fact, they are boring.

Lucy: Look at that. It’s fantastic!

Alex: What? What are you excited about?

Lucy: Over there. That’s amazing. I want to go on that!

Alex: I’m not so sure. I don’t like heights.

Lucy: Oh, come on. It’s great. Don’t be frightened.

Alex: Oh, all right.

After the ride

Lucy: Are you okay, Alex? You look a little ill.

Alex: I’m fine.

Lucy: Do you want to go on it again?

Alex: No, I don’t!

Lucy: Ha ha, you’re scared. Chicken!

How do you feel about the rides in the dialogue and on the first worksheet?               

“I love/ really like/ like/ don’t mind/ don’t like/ hate…”
