CLICK THE PICTURE TO GET THE COPY OF YOUR OWN

This is a very popular game similar to other games like “snakes and ladders”—only without “snakes” and “ladders”. This is a fun game if you know how to carry this out in your classes. You can play this almost in any level you teach; and anywhere as well.

This game works wonder when you use it in your new class and your students are new students. This game—when played correctly--will unite the class and bring them together closer which is very conducive and favorable for the next classroom activity—especially when your classes are conversation class. A conversation class is a good class when all students feel at home and have a sense of togetherness.

ENGLISH SPEAKING ENHANCER GAME

Mission: to find a friend who shares more similarities than differences (i.e close friend)
How to play:

Ø  If there are 12 students, you can put the students into two groups of sixes.
Ø  The groups are to write a table comprising names of their friend in the group (see the picture below)

NO.
NAMES
SIMILARITIES
DIFFERENCES
TOTAL
1.




2.




3.




4.




5.





Ø  One of the students throws a dice. If number 5 comes out, then the student has to move the pin five boxes from START.

Ø  Read the words on the box (e.g. MY MUSIC); and then the student has to mention his favorite music; let say, he says : “MY FAVORITE MUSIC IS R n B”

Ø  The rest of the students must silently or secretly decide whether they share exactly the same favorite music. If YES, so they must write a check mark (√) in the column of SIMILARITIES. Meanwhile, if other students have a different favorite music, he or she must write a check mark (√) in column DIFFERENCES.

Ø  Next, each of the students gives a question in relation to the TOPIC (here the topic is MY MUSIC—R n B). Possible questions:

a.     Who is your favorite R n B singer?
b.     What is your favorite song?
c.     Is there another kind of music that you like?
d.     Why do you like that kind of music?
e.     Etc.

Ø  To each of the answers given, the rest of the students also write a check mark (√) whether in a SIMILIARITIES column or DIFFERENCES column.

Ø  Give the dice to the next player when everybody has finished asking questions.

Ø  Throw the dice from the last position. If the student gets a “four”, then the student must move four boxes from the last position. Do the same procedure like the one described earlier.

The Final Round

Say, that one of the students named Boris has this result on his table. Based on his table, the student who shares similarities is Usep (look the graph below)

            My name: Boris
NO.
NAMES

DIFFERENCES

So then he concludes that USEP is his CLOSE FRIEND to-be, since he shares the most similarities to Boris.

If Usep also has the same conclusion that is he concludes that BORIS shares the most similiarities with him, so it means that they have chosen each other: THEY THE TRUEST FRIEND.
