It is sometimes useful and fun to practice dialogues with someone. I have been looking on the internet, but haven't found many for higher level students.  I wrote this one today and offer it to you to practice with.

If you want to, you can write a dialogue of your own and share it for others to use. You can link it to this blog in the comments and we will all try help you correct your grammar and make the dialogue sound like natural English speech.  Anyway, here is the one I wrote today:

EARTH DAY

A: Do you know about Earth Day?

B: I heard of it but don’t know what it's about.

A: It's on April 22nd, and it is a time to think about the health of our planet.

B: You mean health like having a fever?

A: No, it's more about protecting the planet and reducing waste and pollution.

B: Oh, you mean like recycling and reusing things?

A: Yes. We need to reduce what we use like water and other resources. We need to reuse things that we can and recycle stuff that can’t be reused. We need to reduce our carbon footprint.

B:  What about electricity, should we stop using electricity?

A:  I don’t think I can stop using electricity, can you?

B:  Well, no I don’t. I do need lights, air-conditioning and a refrigerator to keep my food in. I also need the microwave oven and need to keep my phone charged.

A:  I agree electricity is important if we want to live in the modern world.  But, I do think we could use less of it.

B:  How could we use less electricity than we do?

A:  We have to study our usage and then decide what is essential and what we can reduce or do without. You don’t need the lights on when you are not in the room.

B:  I see. I bet I can save if I don’t heat every room.

A:  Yes, and can't you also change the temperature when you use the heater or air-conditioner?  How warm do you keep your rooms?

B:  I usually keep the heater set to 22 or 23 degrees C.

A:  Mine is set on 16 degrees but if I feel cold I will raise it to 17 or 18.  Mostly, I keep it on 16, but I do not walk around the house in my underwear either. I wear warm clothes. In the summer, I keep the house warmer and wear less clothing.

B:  That may be a good place for me to start saving electricity. I can turn off lights as I leave a room and lower my heater temperature setting.

A: Let’s make a list of other things we can do to use less electricity.

B: Good idea.  That can save us money too. I will reuse this old paper to make the list.

I think you might have fun if you and a friend practice dialogues or even record yourselves. You are welcome to record this one and add it on the Kill your Fear of Talking Group ( http://my.englishclub.com/group/kill-your-fear-of-talking ).  I would also love to see any dialogues that you write.

I learnt the following things having read this blog written in the form of a dialogue,

1) the concept of writing a dialogue, how to collect information and rearranged them in the form of a live dialogue.

Thank you for sharing such a useful blog, it is an addition to members' knowledge

2) About the Earth Day, I did not actually know when it is clebrated and what are the cause of its celebration.
