I Need a Ticket to Osaka, Japan An ESL Role-play Purpose and Audience: This role-play is intended for false beginners who are working in the tourist industry or need some survival travel English skills. It could also be used for business classes where the students are expected to travel frequently. Warm-up: As one possible warm-up, I prepare a few notes with the following instructions: Your teacher is a travel agent. After the student has had a chance to digest the note, approach them and ask the following so that the whole class can see and hear: Welcome to Chris's Travel (use your own name). Are you traveling alone? Will this be one way or return? When would you like to depart? When would you like to return? Do you mind a stopover? Would you prefer economy, business, or first class? After you have done this a few times, the students are usually familiar with the vocabulary in the role-play.
