Languages vocabulary workout - works for all languages

Languages vocabulary workout - works for all languages

Here's a game I invented to practise vocabulary - best for more advanced KS4 groups or KS5. Begin with the bits of vocab you want to learn cut up on small bits of paper. Cut some coloured card up as tokens. Instructions are on the board. Best played in groups of 3 -4. Best printed A3 if possible. Also great to explain to people born post 2000 is who Mr Motivator is. Essential cultural knowledge. I've attached some vocab I used as an idea.
