Abstract
Legal English courses are aimed at improving communication in the legal environment: we, as teachers, try to simulate authentic situations, we provide our learners with helpful phrases, but to what extent can we practice real legal communication with the first year undergraduates? In the presentation I share several communication activities and discuss the students’ achievements and the lessons learnt by the teacher. The presented activities involve the expected areas of interviewing a client, negotiations and discussions, however, they are topped by practical examples and improvements which support the authenticity of tasks as well as students’ creativity and engagement. The feedback showed that the majority of students considered the presented communication activities useful and relevant.
