Doctor skit

Doctor Skit


Melissa Hughes


SKILLS: Listening and speaking mainly, but a little bit of reading and writing
TIME: 2 lessons
MATERIALS: Worksheet of dialogue outline, as many interesting props from the Nurse’s room as possible, scorecard, `excellent English and drama skills` awards
OBJECTIVES: Pp 74-75 New Horizons - Hospital
Have all students make a dialogue in pairs and present to the class




1st lesson


1. Perform a skit with the JTE using the target dialogue – make it funny and use lots of gestures.


2. Ask students questions in Japanese to check their understanding.


3. Hand out worksheets to all students and then perform the skit again, so students can follow the worksheet and understand how to use it.


4. Go through the worksheet, practicing phrases. Review different body parts with the phrase `My … hurts`.


5. Explain the activity to students – they are to make pairs, use the worksheet as a base to make their own dialogue (they can use the suggestions provided on the worksheet if they don’t have any other ideas), and perform in front of the class, next lesson. They should use the props you have brought along from the Nurse’s room, and should make it interesting for other students.


6. Give students about 20 minutes or so to make their dialogue – try to guide them with some interesting ideas.


7. Have each pair write their name on a big piece of paper, and allocate presentation order.


2nd lesson


1. Have students put their pair name cards on the blackboard in presentation order.


2. Hand out scorecards with the following headings - name, sickness, score (1 - 5).


3. Students present their skits, and everyone else fills in their own scorecards.


4. Have each student individually decide which 2 pairs they thought were the best (not themselves!), and have them go to the blackboard and draw a star next to their 2 picks.


5. Teachers can pick about 5 pairs (to show more students what a good job they did, even if they weren’t as funny or popular).


6. The pair with the most stars next to their name can receive an award each – excellent drama and English award, or whatever.




I was surprised with how creative the students were – watching the presentations was pretty entertaining, and seemed fun for the students too. They liked the props, and had some pretty amusing ways of using them! They had to listen to other students in order to fill out their scorecards, so they were focused the whole time.
