Set the scene for the dialogue, perhaps using pictures.

Elicit a dialogue line by line, modelling and drilling each line as you get to it. Frequently go back and forward, asking students to repeat the dialogue to you, with a partner, across the room etc. Continue until you have elicited the entire dialogue.

Elicit it again line by line, this time writing it on the board as you go along. Mark the dialogue for stress and intonation, with the students’ input.

Ask students to practise the dialogue in pairs. Gradually rub out the words, but leave the features of pronunciation as a crutch for the students.
