Abstract

The paper suggests group role-play as an oral exam alternative. It describes how such an exam can be set up and provides concrete examples. The role-play examples discussed draw on vocabulary, grammar structures and topics presented in most textbooks and can be designed for use in the first two years of language learning. With the emphasis on creative and playful elements, the exam situation is transformed into a positive and even enjoyable experience.
