Fun ESL Games

Fun ESL Games

Two separate versions of the ‘fun time’ game for ESL students. Class is divided into two teams, and then they can pick from one of five topics Drawing, Acting, Taboo, Question and Who/What Am I. Students then choose from one of eight options for each topic and come to the front of the class to do whatever they chose. Drawing is like Pictionary, Acting is Charades, Taboo is a well known game, questions allow a chance to review some knowledge learnt in class and Who/What Am I works on students logical thinking.

Graffiti - Art or Eyesore?

Graffiti - Art or Eyesore?

A series of tasks, based on a selection of texts exploring whether Graffiti could be called ‘Art’ or ‘Eyesore’. All students that I have ever taught have really enjoyed taking part in this and the debates it brought. Please leave a review and feel free to browse my other resources - many of which are free as I know how hard teachers work for too little money! Many thanks
