This paper presents fifteen intermediate to advanced roleplays along with a general introduction and specific teaching notes for their use. The materials are especially useful as a supplementary resource for classes following a communicative, function-based curriculum. The majority of the roleplays take a conflict-resolution format in which the students must reach a consensus opinion on some problem before the roleplay can be said to be completed. The roleplay descriptions themselves follow a concise model and are oriented towards lighthearted, imaginative situations which nevertheless require students to actively use language to which they have been previously exposed.
