Hot seat!


Some stu­dents are put in the po­si­ti­on of the main cha­rac­ters and are in­ter­view­ed by their class­ma­tes.


Put yours­elf in the po­si­ti­on of XY and try and iden­ti­fy with his/her si­tua­ti­on, fee­lings and cir­cums­tances → deeper un­der­stan­ding!

Main cha­rac­ters: Play the role of your cha­rac­ter. Think about what kind of ques­ti­ons the others could ask you and pre­pa­re with re­gards to the con­tent → work with the text!

Also, try to think about what kind of lan­guage you could need, such as use­ful ex­pres­si­ons for an­s­we­ring ques­ti­ons, buy­ing some time or avo­iding cer­tain to­pics.

Do take notes on con­tent and lan­guage!

Pick two ac­tors who will re­pre­sent your cha­rac­ter on the hot seat!

In­ter­view­ers: Think of re­le­vant (!) ques­ti­ons to ask the main cha­rac­ters.

Do take notes re­gar­ding con­tent and lan­guage.

Du­ring the in­ter­view, you will al­ter­na­te­ly ask your ques­ti­ons → ever­yo­ne will ask at least one ques­ti­on!
