1. Work in small groups. You are a group of refugees who have arrived in a town where you would like to stay. You have to try to persuade the local council to accept you. Think about what you are going to say, e.g.

- Who you are. Are you a family, a group of friends or people who you met when you left your country?

- The reason(s) why you left your country.

- Why you need help and what kind of help you need (accommodation, work, school for your children, money...)

- What you are prepared to do to become part of the local community.

2. Present your answers to the class (the local council).
