Round 3: The Final One – We Role Play!
In this real life scenario role play, you can take turns to play the role of Alex and Brooke. If you feel confident, just dive right in – if you need some creative support, you can read the role play script below.
Renting a Car and Asking for Directions
Participant A: Alex
- Goal: Rent a car for a weekend getaway.
- Instructions: Research different car rental companies and their rates. Decide on a car type and insurance coverage. Approach Participant B to ask for directions to a nearby attraction.
Participant B: Brooke
- Goal: Help Alex with directions and engage in conversation about local attractions.
- Instructions: Be knowledgeable about the area and ready to give clear driving directions to a local landmark. Provide information about nearby attractions and suggest a scenic route.
Scene Setup: Alex walks into a simulated car hire agency where Brooke, a representative, is stationed behind the counter. After completing the car hire process, Alex decides to strike up a conversation with Brooke to get directions to a nearby scenic overlook.
Role Play Script:
Alex: (Walking up to the counter) Hello there! I’m looking to hire a car for a weekend trip. Could you assist me, please?
Brooke: Of course, I’d be delighted to help. Where are you planning to go?
Alex: I’m off to Hillside Village for the weekend. Any recommendations on the best type of car and insurance coverage?
Brooke: Excellent choice! Considering the winding roads around there, I’d recommend an SUV. As for insurance, we offer a standard package that covers most situations. Would you like to add any extra coverage?
Alex: Sounds splendid. Let’s go with the SUV and the standard insurance package.
Brooke: Perfect. I’ll just need your driving licence and credit card for verification. (Completes paperwork)
Alex: Cheers! Also, while I’m in Hillside Village, I’d love to visit a scenic overlook nearby. Could you provide me with directions?
Brooke: Absolutely. When you leave the car hire agency, turn left onto Main Street. Drive for about 2 miles, then you’ll reach a roundabout. Take the second exit onto Hillside Road.
Alex: Got it. What’s next?
Brooke: Carry on along Hillside Road for about 4 miles until you spot a sign for “Skyview Lookout.” Take a right onto Skyview Lane, and it’ll lead you to the overlook.
Alex: Brilliant, thanks! Any other attractions or routes you’d recommend?
Brooke: Absolutely. If you’re up for a slightly longer drive, you can take the scenic route by heading south on Maple Avenue. It offers some breathtaking views of the countryside. Plus, there’s a charming café en route, perfect for a pit stop.
Alex: That sounds like a plan. Thanks so much for the directions and tips!
Brooke: You’re most welcome! Have a fantastic trip and enjoy the drive!
(The role play concludes with Alex leaving the car hire agency equipped with a car, directions, and a sense of anticipation for the upcoming weekend adventure.)
