Tried and tested (and approved!) games and activities to help English learning.

Monday, April 09, 2012


Level: Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced.

Skills: speaking.

Topic: warmer.

Materials: none.

Time: 5 to 10 minutes.

The objective of this quick game is to guess words when they are spelt backwards. 

First, divide the class into two groups. Appoint a student to start the game; he or she spells out a word backwards. The first student   —  of any group  —  to identify the word correctly scores one point. If students guess the word incorrectly, they lose a point. [Alternatively, the student who guesses correctly becomes the next player to spell out the word backwards].

The game can also be played with one student pronouncing a word backwards (e.g. 'taerg' for great backwards).
