Shortened sentences

To sensitize students to the idea that meaning can be judged largely by intonation can be illustrated by this conversation, which you can record on tape, and get the students to guess what the situation is, then get them to practise and expand what?s there. Here is an example :

"Hi."

"Hi."

"New."

"Yes. You?"

"No."

"Good school?"

"Very."

"City?"

"Okay."

"Night."

"Cool."

"Discos?"

"Yes."
