The “Three-steo Interview” methodology aims at the equal participation of all students, who learn to listen and summarise.


The activity lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.


  • Step 1: the teacher proposes a specific task to the class. Each student works on the task individually for a set time (10, 15… minutes).

  • Step 3: The couples swap roles. Now student B interviews A.
