Ideas for English Lessons



Subject: Spelling


Skills: Speaking.

Level: A2

Recommended Age: 10+

Participants Number: 5-9 players.

Time: 10-15 minutes.

Place: Classroom.

Equipment: A set of Alphabet flash cards; A game table, which can be two desks, put together.

Materials: Not required.

Preliminary Preparation (5-10 minutes): Pick such a word, where the number of letters coincide with the number of players and none of them is repeated. To give an example, let us take the word 'holiday' for a group of 7 people. Next select the cards with the corresponding letters.

Immediate Preparation (5-10 minutes): Seat the players around the game table and distribute the cards face down. Thereby each player knows only one letter, their total number in the word and the fact, that none of them is repeated.

How to Play. The game may start like this:

Player А (who has got 'I'): Is it 'kitchen'?

You: No, it isn't.

Player B (who has got 'H'): Is it 'brother'?

You: No, it isn't.

Player C (who has got 'A'): Is it 'surname'?

You: No, it isn't.


The player, who guessed the word, wins the game.
