4) GAME – BUY ME – SELL ME (pair work)
- Cut out a set of Appearance Exchange Cards so everyone has 4-5 cards (it depends on the number of SS, make more cards if needed, just remember that everyone must have the same number of cards on hand)
- Divide the class into pairs, and have them discuss in what top-5 ways would their dream
partner look like, and 5 ways a partner from hell would look like (using new words). SS also use to be and Present Simple to describe their partners.
- SS have Appearance Exchange Cards, whether good or bad and they must try and sell them to the group (one appearance card for another one)
- SS must think about cards, and what’s positive about it even if they are disgusting.
- 1 important rule – SS cannot keep their cards. They must sell their cards, and buy new ones. When the game begins they walk around the room and try to barter cards with everybody.
(# - Hello. I have something interesting for you. Look, your girl has wrinkles.
- Hi. No, I don’t want a girl with wrinkles. She is old. I want to have a young large-breasted girl.
- Oh, you don’t understand. All kind and funny girls have wrinkles.
- Really? Ok then.)
- After all the cards have been sold, put students into pairs again and have them think as if they were in a relationship with that person they’ve just bought (all these appearance cards make a person altogether). In pairs SS describe their just bought partners to each other).

The above downloadable handout is best suited for adults at Elementary (A1) level. It is valuable for teaching BE (auxiliary verb) in English, and can be used for improving your class' Speaking skills. It is about the topic and words of Describing people.
