Role-play "Psychologists" As far as I know some of you like to read youth magazines. You can find so-called problem pages where you read teens letters, some complains, advice. Today I`ve got three teens letters from the magazine "Speak out". Pretend you are psychologists. Read the letters attentively and give your advice to these teens. You can use key-words and of course your ideas. Don`t forget to use linking words: I think, I believe, I suppose, As for me, To my mind, In my opinion, Besides, In addition to that, To sum it up, In conclusion). Dear psychologists, My name is Martin. I`m 15. I`ve got many problems at school. In fact, I hate school. I hate doing homework. I don`t feel comfortable with my schoolmates.

Dear psychologists, My name`s Susan. I`m 14. My parents don`t understand me. They think, my favorite music is too loud, my clothes are very strange, my make-up is too bright. No one listens to me! They only grumble (ворчат). I`m fed up with it! (сыт по горло). What can you advise me? Bye, Susan. Key words: Try to be tolerant Try to understand your parents, their point of view. Try to behave (вести себя) like a real adult, not like a little girl. Help your parents and other people-they will think that you are SPECIAL. Try to bring up (воспитывать) an elegant taste in clothes.(look at fashion magazines and shows)
Dear psychologists, My name is Sally, I`m15. My parents don`t allow me to get a part time job. But I really need more pocket money to buy new CDs, computer games and clothes.

Remember, every difficult situation has a solution. Some ways to help yourself in troubles. Each group receives advice from real psychologists how to overcome difficulties, how to cope with problems. Read them aloud and another group tries to translate it. ADVICE 1. Remember, you are a unique. Do not compare yourself with any one else. ADVICE 2: Do something for someone else. The people you are helping will think you are something special. ADVICE 3: Keep notes of your problems. You can do it in code if you worry about privacy. By the end of the month, you will see how many problems you really can solve ADVICE 4: Allow yourself to fail. We do learn from experience. Each failure teaches us something. ADVICE 5: Work out your own motto. For example, "I am doing my best.", "I am a great person". Repeat it wherever you start feeling blue. ADVICE 6: If we are broad-minded and tolerant, we can respect different opinions and make the world happier. Which advice do you like best? Is it useful or useless?
VI. Create your own T-shirts with your motto. (for example: Let`s change the world to the best Say "no" to drugs (alcohol, cigarettes) Say "yes" to freedom (piece, love, tolerance, friendship) Everyone has the right to life (non-discrimination) Put cigarettes (alcohol, drugs) out of fashion. Being a teenager means to be happy (to have great fun). Let us make a conclusion if being a teenager is difficult or not.
