Requests from teachers for very basic, beginner's dialog scripts have lured me into the writing of these. Keeping vocabulary simple, useful and interesting, and at the same time using grammar at its simplest is challenging. Dialogs, of course, always involve the action that happens between the lines, so that even simple, perhaps "boring" looking dialog could include some original ideas behind the lines. As I write the lines, my very active dramatic mind foresees possibilities, so I hope you get to enjoy the dialogs as they are brought to life by your students.
Although students are only at the beginning in their new language, they are adults with a full range of originality, life experience and sophistication. Therefore, it is important to encourage students to add a dramatic element that makes the dialog come alive.
Hello fellow teachers,
