Instructions to the English teacher
Get the students to alternate roles.
|Good morning. I'd like a ticket to London, please.|
|Single or return?|
|Student 1||Return please, second class. When is the next train?|
|Student 2||There's an InterCity that leaves at 8:26, but you have to change at Derby. There's an express that goes straight through at 9:10.|
|Student 1||Oh I don't want to change trains. How much is the 9:10 one please?|
|Student 2||When will you be returning?|
|Student 1||Later today.|
|Student 2||Well a day return will only cost you £24.|
|Student 1||Great. I'll take it. What platform does the train leave from?|
|Student 2||Platform 2.|
