4. Interview

a. Use the questions below to interview three people in your class about their opinions and experiences.

  • What are the most frequent types of crime in your country/city?

  • How safe do you feel in your country/city?

  • What is the most dangerous city in your country?

  • Have you ever been the victim of a crime?

b. Report your findings to the class. Try to use the following verb patterns:

admit doing smth / admit + that-clause

complain to sb about smth / complain + that-clause

deny doing smth / deny + that-clause

explain to sb + that-clause

wonder where/what/why/how + clause

c. Write a short survey of your findings.


1. Pre-listening task brainstorming about the topic

When you brainstorm about a topic, you allow yourself to think about it freely and can generate unexpected ideas and reactions. A good way to brainstorm is to use a word map that indicates your ideas about different aspects of the topic.

Work with a partner. Look at the word map below. Think about crime and

brainstorm different aspects of crime. You may, for example, focus on types of crime, causes and effects of crime, personal experiences with crime, punishments for crime, or any other aspects of crime that occur to you. Write notes about your thoughts on the word map. Add as many lines to the word map as you wish.

Share your ideas with another pair of classmates.

2. Listening Technical terms

Many fields of study have technical terms that you need to know in order to understand and discuss topics in that field.

1. Read the technical terms for various types of crime and their definitions (given in parentheses) in the left column of the chart below. Then listen to a series of radio crime reports. As you listen, write the number of the report next to the type of crime that is being reported.

Type of crime

Report number

Arson (setting property on fire)

Burglary (going into a building to steal something)

Motor vehicle theft (stealing a car)

Murder (killing someone, also called "homicide")

Rape (forcing someone to have sexual relations)

Shoplifting (stealing from a store)

Weapons possession (having a weapon without a license)

2. Compare your answers with a partner.

3. Speaking 1 Game Board

1. Look at the ‘game board’ below. It has questions about different aspects of crime and criminals. Circulate among your classmates, using the game board to ask questions (one question per classmate). If your classmate can give you a well-developed answer to a question – not just one sentence – write the name of the classmate in that box and make some brief notes about the answer. When you complete three boxes across and three down, stop the activity.
