Interview with Justin Peaber

In this simple interview activity for A1 learners, students must piece together a fragmented interview with Justin Peaber and then make their own interview.

Interviews can be a great way for students to learn English at all levels. Chances are you’ve already encountered some interviews in whatever textbook you are using right now. I remember one textbook that had a mini interview with Tom Hanks where I learned that he collected typewriters. Who knew?! Apparently everybody… This simple interview activity for beginners has been crafted for A0-A1 students and can be used as a discovery, practice or review tool for some of those first presentation and introduction questions we all must learn in a new language if we want to have any chance of meeting people or making friends.

In this simple interview activity, students must unjumble a jumbled up interview with Justin Peaber, a well-known pop star. They can do this individually, in pairs or as a class. Once the basic questions have been taken care of, think about prolonging the activity with one of these options:

  1. Have students come up with more questions to ask Justin Peaber.
  2. Have pairs interview each other with similar questions, then present their partners to the class.
  3. Put students in pairs, each taking turns pretending to be a celebrity, for example the two at the bottom right of the worksheet. They can answer the questions with their imagination or look up the information on their phones during class.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
