Dialogue and Dialogue variations are activities that provide practice with listening and speaking skills in structured conversations. Using variations of a dialogue gives learners the opportunity to introduce their own responses into the activity and create a more authentic language experience. Learners practice a set dialogue, discuss possible responses that they can use, and then take turns saying the dialogue with their classmates.
