Emergency and Illness Role Play Cards

These cards contain pictures of emergency situations or accidents that are useful for intermediate and upper intermediate EFL/ESL learners.

To use these cards teachers can have students work in groups. After presenting the topic teachers can pass out these cards to students.

First students match the problem with what to say in the situation. This practice activity helps to clarify vocabulary and allows students to demonstrate understanding of specific situations.

Following I have students choose one situation as a group and create a role play performance based on the situation.

Alternatively teachers can ask students to write the role play, however it is useful with more advanced students to encourage performance of a role play without writing.

Teachers can also use these cards for flash card activities, as writing prompts, or for pattern drills.
