write a biographical sketch


General Information

When you start a break-the-ice conversation, you aim at getting as much general information as possible about the person you speak to. You ask a lot of questions and you receive answers. You can record all this. It's pair work in one of the languages learned by one of the 2 students. The other student is using his mother tongue and can give grammatical and lexical feedback.

Then, there can be a second stage. It's very easy for you, if youwant, to write a text about what you have learned: the life and likes of your tandem partner. You can write a biographical sketch. when ready you send your partner the biography you will have written. That can be looked upon as your gift for taking part in the initial conversation.
