Using interview sheets is a great way to encourage students to speak to a large number of other students in their class, sometimes students they otherwise wouldn't normally speak to, using the target English language of the lesson. A benefit is that they get to learn about their classmates at the same time.
This is a lesson activity for the Junior High 3rd grade text book introduced in 2012. There is a part that deals with catching a train and asking for directions to catch a train somewhere. This activity gives the students a chance to have a go in a somewhat real world example.
This activity might take a large portion of class time so you'll need to be sure the JTE is on board for that. In this activity, students will have to get creative, use their group work skills, negotiate, and even get a bit artistic so it's really great for building important life skills in addition to the English grammar point of the day.
