This is a game to practise personal descriptions, and works on aural skills.
The competitive element makes the children a lot more eager to join in and really listen. I have been using with my students aged 10 and 11.
This is a good game for high-energy groups when you need to get them all sitting down and on task.
They really have to concentrate to stay in the game. If you don’t have space to get everyone sitting in a circle or you can’t move the tables you can do it standing up.
This is a great activity to get students moving about and practice some vocabulary or sentence structures.
This is like a role-play activity with no dialogue!
It needs a little bit of preparation time for you to write out the ‘problem cards’.
This is a fun activity to create a group story.
Each student needs a blank sheet of paper and a pen. If possible, sit in a circle shape to play.
These activities all use letters from the classic game of Scrabble.
An essential skill in communicating and keeping up a conversation is the ability to ask questions.
