Activity Overview

Some of the most basic vocabulary beginner students will need to practice is the language used in greeting people. Once students have learned the basic expressions for saying “hello”, “goodbye”, and “how are you”, they can use storyboards to reinforce this vocabulary. For this activity, have students create two short scenarios in which people greet each other in both informal and formal settings.

After the students have created the storyboards, have them present them to the class as a means of practicing their oral language skills. You can have students come up with their own scenarios or provide them with several to choose from, depending on how much scaffolding you would like to give to students. If you'd like them to solely focus on the dialogue, create the scenes (or remove the dialogue from the example) and have students fill in the bubbles.
