Speak, Write and Play In Cantonese

Are you learning Cantonese? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Cantonese? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Cantonese. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Cantonese. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!* Please note - these resources provide visual prompts, not specific language instruction.Cantonese Bingo pack: This is a simple starter game for students. There are 114 different pictures to choose from. Select a single picture and project the image on the wall or share it with the class as a hand-out.Let's Talk in Cantonese!: This set of cards looks at 57 different settings. The teacher describes something in the top card. The students then use this to model a sentence using the bottom set of pictures. There are lots of things to see and describe in every picture. When the students have completed this task, they can repeat it by working in pairs to discuss each picture.Let's Write in Cantonese pack: There are lots of ways of using this teaching pack. It could be used as writing assessment for students learning Cantonese. The students could write about a topic in Cantonese before and then after a topic, using the second worksheet at the end of the topic.

Stop the Bus/Scattegories

Stop the Bus/Scattegories

A game that can be used as a plenary or to identify key terms for a lesson. I often use 'fun' categories, followed by a couple more serious ones. I have included a tutorial of how to play and a blank sheet to print out.Students are required to think of words for each category and as soon as they have filled in all the categories in a horizontal line they need to shout 'stop the bus' everyone needs to put their pens down and they can score points by putting original words in. Teacher or student to pick the letter that the whole class use. Please see tutorial for more detail.Only trouble I have had is trying to score the class as a whole when they play individually. I often just use the person who has said stop the bus first.
