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

Monday, November 19, 2012


Level: Advanced.

Skills: speaking.

Topic: vocabulary.

Materials: none.

Time: 5 to 10 minutes.

Students choose (or are given) words for which they have to make humorous definitions. Often the definitions will use a pun (as in 'boomerang, what you say to frigten a meringue' or 'carrion, British comedy films') but sometimes they will be witty (as in 'alone, in bad company', or 'cannibal, someone who goes to a restaurant and orders the waiter'). As the game demands a deeper undestanding of the language, it is deemed to very Advanced students.
