Students survey their classmates to find those who can sign one of the phrases on the sheet. Students to sign their initials in the space provided. They have four minutes to complete the survey

The students line up in teams of six. When the teacher signs “START“, students pass the conversation down the line as fast as they can. 

STUDENT 1: HI, HOW ARE YOU?

STUDENT 2: GOOD! LONG TIME NO SEE! HOW ARE YOU? 

STUDENT 1: GOOD, THANK YOU! 

Student 2 then turns to the third student and they repeat the conversation and so on. The first team to pass the conversation down the line is the winner. Do not forget to do deaf applause when finished.
