People say a lot with their body language. When we're happy, we smile. When we're excited, we might dance a little, or raise our hands in the air. Body language is an important part of communication. How well do you communicate with your face and body? Let's find out!
With your partner (your teacher, if you're in a lesson), try to communicate these feelings with just your face and body. No words allowed! Choose one and see if you can get your partner to guess it. Then your partner will do the same. Keep trading places like that. You can choose the same ones your partner has already done, and see if you can express it well, too. Once you've done a few of the feelings, talk about the experience with your teacher/partner.
- I don't know. I have no idea of the answer.
- I feel very ashamed and embarrassed.
- I’ve got a good idea!
- We won the match!
- I’m confused.
- I’m afraid.
- This is really boring.
- I don’t want to talk to you.
- This is disgusting.
- I really like you, and I'd like to get to know you better.
