SECTION 1: Free Speaking + Discussion
As a group (not a team!) you are going to discuss a question.
- Can you sell FUTURE memories?
- Do companies sell future memories in OUR days?
- HOW do they do this?
- Is it for the good or the bad of their clients?
— spend 7 minutes on making up your mind and formulating your position
— discuss the positions of each other
— present YOUR positions in ANY way you find suitable (mind map, comix, meme, poem, comment, story, advertisement, sms, tweet, mind map, picture, comic strip )
SECTION 2: Formal Writing: Letter
Wonderful news! Two days ago I went to the company which I had told you about. «Memo», do you remember? They offer to solve my biggest problem — my feeling of insecurity and hesitation to start anyhting new.
I think the key to this problem is my school years. At school I was always busy with something else. Something not related to studies. My teachers always said such people would be not be successful in their future lives. I failed many of my school projects and had to change school.
«Memo» claims they can easily fix this! They replace my old memories with the new ones. Those in which I was successful and popular! Yes they are fake. True. But who cares if it helps, right? What if they chnage my life, Josh? And you know how much I want to be happy.
I am paying them a visit on Friday.
Will write back as soon as possible!
— write a letter to Ksenia in which you try to persuade her not to replace her memories (alternatively, try to encourage her to do this)
SECTION 3: Formal Speaking: Pictures
You have three memories to sell to your potential client.
— Choose one which you believe will be easier to sell (our sales and psychology team has already analysed the preferences and current memories of the clients. They say he/she has shown interest in all of the these)
— Describe what is the memory about. Provide details. Say when and where the memory was taken.
— Say how this memory can help your client change his life for the better
— Say why you personally would prefer to have such a memory
Your client is still undecided about which of the two memories to take.
— Say about the similarities
— Say about the differences
— Say which memory you would choose
