Communitative Objective: you will learn how to vividly describe somebody’s appearance and point out certain characteristics.

Situation: you are doing some grocery shopping at a store when a person comes in and robs the store! The police arrive at the scene after the crime to find that you are the only witness and only chance to help catch the criminal.

Task: work in pairs, one plays the witness and the other plays the policeman. Look at the pictures first. The “witness” will choose the suspect out of the photos attached on the link below.  The witness will then give a description of the suspect to the “policeman” while the policeman listens to the descriptions.  After a vivid description, the policeman will then have to guess which out of the selected photos is the person that committed the crime based on the description.
