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 survey:

Find someone who...

1. ........loves to drink apple juice.
2. ........knows how to do a French braid.
3. ........prefers hamburgers to steak.
4. ........wants to visit New York City.
5. ........knows how to sail.
6. ........snores while he/she sleeps.
7. ........has difficulty pronouncing the "r" sound.
8. ........has a dream of being a movie star.
9. ........won an award in high school.
10. .......has a strange pet.
11. .......speaks more than four languages.
12. .......is allergic to peanuts.
13. .......wants to visit outer space.
14. .......can't whistle.
15. .......still sends "snail mail" sometimes.
16. .......bites his/her nails.
17. .......wears glasses for reading.
18. .......never eats breakfast.
19. .......talks to strangers regularly.
20. .......plays on a sports' team.
DO NOT USE ONE NAME MORE THAN ONCE!


How to conduct your survey:
1. Choose a number and try to find a member who can answer yes to your question:
Example: I'm playing Game #10 Find Someone Who. I'm looking for a MyEC member who loves to drink apple juice. Do you love to drink apple juice?
2. Repeat until you have a name beside all of the answers.
3. Invite your friends to come and play the game too.

Tips for finding people who can answer "yes":
1. Post questions as status updates. Make members come to you!
2. Leave messages on members' walls.
3. Send private messages.
4. Ask questions in the chat room.

Note: Please DO NOT send a group message with all of the questions. That's too easy and takes the fun out of it!

How to post the results:
Post your results on your own blog. Use the title: My Game #10 Results. Substitute the dots in the list with the members' names (include a link to their profile page). If members give you extra information, you can add a second sentence. Example:
9. John won an award in high school. He was the hardest working student in his class.

Are you "in"?
Please leave a comment if you are playing! Just write, "I'm playing!" You can start your results blog right away (copy the list above) and add names as you find people. Or, if you want to keep your results secret, (so others don't copy) wait until you find all 20 people before you post your results.

*Don't forget to come back to the game to share a link to your results. Have fun!
