How to Play. Player A comes to the front of the class and answers his/her classmates’ questions in such a way that the keyword begins with the same letter as his/her name. The game may start like this: 
You: What's your name?
Player A: My name's Evelina.
You: How do you spell that, please?
Player A: E-V-E-L-I-N-A.
Player B: Where are you from?
Player A: I'm from Egypt.
Player C: What's your job?
Player A: I'm an engineer.
Player D: What's your favourite colour?
If Evelina can not name a colour beginning with the letter ‘E’, she returns to her place, getting 2 points by the number of her answers. Then these are Player B’s turn to come to the front of the class and Player C’s right to ask the first question, etc. The game lasts as long as each student answered all questions. The winner is the player to get the most points.
