I do this activity in my spoken English classes. It’s absolute chaos but great practice and great fun at the same time. Rather than typing up all of the instructions, I’m just going to post a picture of the worksheet that students receive to guide them through the activity; all of the instructions are included.

About 1/4- 1/3 of students should be travel agents. I usually print a few copies of each travel airline schedule and laminate them so they can be easily re-used. To download the airline schedules, click here: Airline Schedules
Travel agents are responsible for cutting and distributing airline tickets as they help customers book flights. To download airline tickets, click here: Airline Tickets
In each class, just a handful of students (usually 2 or 3) should be police officers. This really helps with reinforcing rules. Police officers receive a police badge and fine cards that they cut and distribute as needed. To download the police badges, click here: Police Badges
To download the police fine cards, click here: Police Fine Cards
Some teachers play the game with fake money; my students just imagine that they’re using a credit card and keep a running tally of how much they spend on tickets or are fined by the police.
