Pre-Intermediate Level >> Conversation Materials/Surveys/Pairwork Activities >> Students move around the class asking their classmates for advice on some problems they have. To practice "should" and "shouldn't".

Advice Mingle Activity


Give two or three to each student.

The type of dialogue you should be aiming for is as follows:

A: Hello Davide, can you give me some advice? My cat is very fat.
B: Oh, I think you should put it on a diet. I also have a problem. My hair is too dry. What should I do?
A: You should change your shampoo. And I think you should ask your hairdresser for advice.
B: OK, thank you. Bye.

Afterwards, have some feedback on who gave the best advice to different problems.
