A list of 55 questions for EAL/ESOL students - Speaking /Vocabulary - Term plan

55 questions organised into popular and relevant themes. Each topic includes a creative task to assist with cementing understanding. The questions are based on Blooms taxonomy and aim to extend higher thinking in the student's second language. I use this resource at the beginning of my one on one lessons. I ask a question each lesson and work through the list. It's a productive and highly organised way to promote speaking skills. Each topic has five questions.

ESL - ELL CATCH PHRASE Speaking Game

ESL - ELL CATCH PHRASE Speaking Game

ESL - ELL CATCH PHRASE Speaking Game Catch Phrase is a fun game to get your students speaking and having fun in English while learning tons of new vocabulary words. This game doesn't follow any particular theme, so the 80 playing cards display 80 unrelated words - a fantastic way to round out your students' speaking skills! This game is a lot like the TABOO game (click here for themed ESL TABOO games) but there are no taboo words. Each game card shows the word in question in French along with an image to illustrate it. This product includes: How to play 80 playing cards in color 80 playing cards in black and white File showing one card per page to project for all class activity The game is played in two teams. The goal for each player is to get their team to say the word or word phrase displayed on the game card. One member of a team starts a timer for 5 minutes and tries to get his or her team to guess the displayed word or phrase. A clue-giver can make any physical gesture and give almost any verbal clue, but may not say a word that rhymes with any of the words, give the first letter of a word, say the number of syllables, or say part of any word in the clue. When the team guesses correctly, the other team takes the stack of cards and takes its turn. Play continues until the timer runs out. The team not holding the stack of cards when time runs out scores a point. They also have one chance to guess the word or phrase, with team members allowed to confer; a correct answer earns a bonus point. The first team to score 7 points wins.
