  1. We just launched a new “Role Play” section on ESL-Library. Teachers have the option of using Quick Cards for improv or giving students time to prepare with a 1 page worksheet containing useful expressions. This section is theme-based (9 scenarios per theme on topics like socializing, working, traveling etc.) with related materials in the Teachers’ Notes. I hope you’ll have a look. Cheers!
