This is an experience sharing of the design of a role-play in the Chinese language classroom by the author and a primary Chinese language teacher, using the elements of the drama: Still Image and Thought Tracking. Findings indicate that students have more chances to participate in activities, think in different perspectives of the questions and this helps them to develop their critical thinking. They learn happily and devotedly. The result is quite encouraging. However, there is still room for improvement on the design of the activities.
