(young) adults/ CEFR level B1+ onwards
Groups of 3-4 students
This exercise is especially suited for shy students, as they don’t have to be in the spotlight themselves. The Plotagon characters are the real stars here.
*If time is short, you could have them write the texts as homework.
This exercise could also be adapted to create:
Work in groups of 3-4. You are going to write a news bulletin with three headlines.
Choose three subjects that you want to include.
Decide who will be in the live reports: you could have an interview, or switch to live action, or use a voiceover …
Write the texts for the news readers in the studio, and for the live reports.
Now for the fun part! Create the characters in the character creator and select the scenes you want to use.
Finally, create the dialogues and record them. Make sure that everyone in your group contributes to the recording.
