Phase 3: Partner Conversation
*After visiting a target language website for a restaurant in the target culture, students will practice discussing the following aspects of their virtual restaurant visit with a classmate who visited a different restaurant: name of restaurant, atmosphere, service, food, drink, prices, and whether they recommend the restaurant. They should practice asking and answering questions on each topic. Students should also practice responding to their partners with natural interjections and follow-up questions to show understanding and ability to keep the conversation going.
*Once students are ready, they should be placed with a new classmate (who also visited a different restaurant) to have an unrehearsed conversation about their mutual restaurant experiences and record their conversation for an interpersonal speaking assessment. Students may use Voice Memos on their phones or another recording software or website.
*Students will conduct and record their conversation, asking and answering questions about each required aspect (name of the restaurant, service, atmosphere, food, drink, prices, and recommendation). Students will turn in their recordings for the teacher to assess.
