Seventh Semester Oral Challenge

9 Sep

For this challenge, you will eventually create a Voki person . A Voki is an avatar, and they are looking for partners for special lifelong relationships. You are going to create a Voki avatar  according to a different personality type, and publish a talking personal classified advertisement about your Voki so you can look for your mate. When you finish creating and uploading your Voki,  you are going to choose the Voki that most meets your personal tastes from those other Voki advertisements that are listed in the comments section of this post.

Here is Amazing Madeline who will tell you all about herself as an example. Madeline has used a lot of vocabulary from past semesters that may be good for you to access also.

You might have noticed that Madeline has connected some of her physical features (big mouth) to her personality traits (bossy). You might want to do this also by referring to the collocations presented in the beginning of Unit 1. You might also talk about what the clothes that your avatar is wearing might represent in your Voki presentation.

What you are expected to use in your personal advertisement is the following:

  • collocations
  • tag questions
  • talk about your style and image
  • use an idiom (p.11)


  • Create your Voki avatar first.
  • Brainstorm different collocations you can use to describe his/her/its personality.
  • Write a list of things your Voki likes to do and relate them to the clothes he/she/it is wearing.
  • After you have written down some ideas, write your paragraph and include the vocabulary and grammar points mentioned above.
  • Bring in your paragraph in printed format to get feedback from your teacher.
  • After you get feedback, record your Voki’s personal advertisement.

You can listen to previous Vokis recorded from other classes in personal advertisements.

To share your Voki, paste the standard Voki link from your Voki’s page into a comment box at the bottom of this post. You will also choose your mate from your classmates’ participations.

Remember, that you will not be able to see the comment you upload until I approve it, so please only send it once.
