Listening race

      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.

      Concentration

      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.
