Star Interview worksheets
This integrated set of worksheet tasks develops speaking, listening & communication; reading and writing skills in relation to a topic of individual interest to the learner and also encourages independent research and planning.
Having compared and discussed the features of a few celebrity interview articles from a range of magazines, learners choose a celebrity (or star) who they would like to interview. They then use their knowledge and research skills to collate information about the star and generate questions for an interview, which can later be improvised as a role-playing exchange exercise between learners.
Learners use the letter-writing template provided to invite their star to the interview, and the sister-worksheet Star Interview Article Writing to compose an article – on either paper or computer – in which, ideally, they should emulate the style, tone and features of the magazine articles studied in preparation for the tasks.
