Game #10: Find Someone Who...

magnifying glass

One game that many teachers play in English class is "Find someone who...". In this game the students go around the room and find classmates who can answer "yes" to a list of questions. This game is useful in two ways:



1) You practise turning statements into questions.

2) You have to meet many different people to complete the survey. (You can't rely on just a few friends.)



Let's try it on MyEC using this… Continue

Game #9: Tongue Twisters from A-Z

tongue

Tongue twisters are sentences that use many words with the same sound. A common tongue twister is "She sells seashells by the seashore." Say it quickly a few times in a row. The "s" sound is difficult for some learners.



Tongue twisters are useful for English learners for two reasons:

1. You can learn new words.

2. You can practise your pronunciation.



Let's play a tongue twister game together. We will try to get… Continue

Game #8: Guess My Halloween Costume

Halloween game

Halloween is coming. It is on October 31st. Do you celebrate Halloween in your country?



In my country, children dress-up in scary, funny, or cute costumes and go door to door shouting "trick-or-treat!" Strangers give them candy! When you think about it, it's pretty crazy that this tradition continues. I say "crazy" because many people don't even know their neighbours' names. Parents teach their children NOT to talk to strangers. At least… Continue

Game #6: What would you do if...?

seagull

This weekend I was driving out of a shopping mall when something terrible happened. A seagull walked in front of my car and stopped. The bird was dragging its broken wing and couldn't fly. I couldn't drive around it because of my position in the intersection. Cars piled up behind me as I wondered what to do.

These questions came to me in my moment of panic:



1. Should I run over it and put it out of its… Continue

Game 2: Don't Say "Yes" or "No"

yes

In this game I will start by asking a yes/no question about your country. The first person to read it will answer the question in the comment section. The trick to this game is that you CANNOT use the words "yes" OR "no" in your answer. After answering the question, write a yes/no question (not a "wh" question) using "in your country" for the next person. (In your answer don't forget to tell us what your country is.)… Continue

Game 1: Have you Ever?

This is a fun game people often play at parties. You can use it to practise the past participle.



I'll start by asking a question starting with "Have you ever...?". The first person to comment will answer "yes" or "no" and then ask another "Have you ever" question. The next person will answer that question and write another question.



The game can go on and on for days, months, or years...Remember to answer the question from the last comment. Let's avoid taboo subjects and… Continue
