35th TESOL France Annual ColloquiumJo M - Fun, Games and Weird Activities

Just a minuteRules of the TV showhttps://youtu.be/-YF9o692Cgc Speak on a subject for 60 seconds without* hesitation* repetition* deviation

At anytime one participant can challenge the speaker. If the challenge is correct, they gain a point, if not, the speaker gains a point and continues with the subject.They can repeat the subject on the card.The person speaking as the buzzer / alarm goes off is the winner.

In class, depending on the students level, you would probably use only the hesitation and deviation rules.Jo M - Fun, Games and Weird Activities

BlockbustersRules of the TV showhttps://youtu.be/kvT2qMdPMX4

A solo player competes against a family pair.Each team competes to find words beginning with a given letter according to the definitions the host gives.Each team must link the 2 sides of a square (left right or top bottom) to win the round.

In class, you can put students in teams, and adapt the definitions and proposed letters to their levels.Jo M - Fun, Games and Weird Activities

Call my BluffRules of the game:

Choose weird words with their definition.Put the students into teams and give each team a word (and its definition!). They have to come up with 2 other definitions. The second team decides which definition is the correct one.

(they should use modal verbs of deduction: it cant be it could be it must be )Jo M - Fun, Games and Weird Activities
