The Frame Game: A Flexible Conversation Activity.
Luster, Carl
The Frame Game is a second language conversation activity that allows instructors to determine the content. The activity provides a structure for communication between students and adapts easily to almost any topic. The basic version of the game has been adapted from a management training activity, and is presented along with several variations using classified advertisements, announcements, and capsule reviews taken from newspapers. These activities offer participants the opportunity to practice the vocabulary associated with topics such as American culture, household items, leisure activities, and employment. These activities also offer practice in using language functions such as clarification, description, expression of opinion, agreeing and disagreeing, making and accepting offers, making suggestions, and making invitations. The technique can be further adapted for use with many other topics and materials in order to meet the needs of a wide variety of students and match the resources available to the instructors. (MSE)
