As part of their weekly speaking assessment, the students of Pre-Intermediate B were to interview Santa Claus. It was a pairwork task with one of the students playing the role of Santa and the other being a journalist.
Chotika: What are your hobbies?
Santa: My hobbies are sleeping, singing, and drinking alcohol.
Chotika: How old are you?
Santa: I’m 150 years old.
Chotika: Do you really exist?
Santa: If you believe in me, I exist in your heart.
Chotika: What kind of house do you live in?
Santa: I live in space or in the world in your heart.
Chotika: Why have you got a long beard and why are you fat?
Santa: A long beard is well matched with a fat body. I like sleeping. I sleep soon after I eat dinner so I am fat.
Chotika: How long do you need to make gifts for children?
Santa: I don’t need it. If you imagine some gifts, I can get it using Christmas magic.
Chotika: How many languages do you speak?
Santa: I speak just one language. But, everyone understands my language at Christmas by magic! Ho, Ho, Ho!
Chotika: Why are red and green Christmas colours?
Santa: Because red and green are loud colours. And I like red-wine. I sometimes spill wine on myself.
Chotika: How do you get into houses that have no chimney?
Santa: Elves help me in my job. Sometimes people don’t have a chimney. In addition, I’m very fat. I can’t go through some chimneys. In this case, one of my Elves opens the window and he takes a gift and transports it to children room and puts in the stocking.
