English Homework:
TV Conversation

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

Choose two characters from a TV program that you watch (or from a book that you've read). Imagine the two characters talking together.

I want you to write down the conversation that they would have, in the form of a script.

For example:

Chuckie: I don't think we should do that, Tommy.

Tommy: You're just scared, Chuckie.

Chuckie: Yeah, but what if they find us?

You can make the conversation up or you can use one that you've heard them actually have. Try to write the dialogue in the way that they speak. Listen carefully to how they say things.

Bring your script into school. Don't tell anyone which two characters you've chosen as we may well try and guess.
