A simple game to practice vocabulary and speaking. The students are divided into groups (the size of the groups depends on the number of students in your class). The first group starts by sending one student to the front of the classroom. This student is standing in front of the class, facing the rest of the students from his group so that he cannot see what is on the screen behind him. The teacher (or a students from one of the other groups) starts the presentation and measures 2 minutes (or some other amount of time). The students from the first group, who can now see the first word (an actor) on the screen, are trying to explain it to the one who is facing them and cannot see it. They cannot use any words that contain the same root (e. g. act). When the student guesses the word, the teacher clicks and the next word appears. For each correctly guessed word, the team gets a point (It is a good idea to mark the points after each correctly guessed word with a short chalk line on the blackboard). If the students do not know the meaning of the word or cannot think of a way to explain it, they can say „next“ and skip that particular slide, but they can do this three times at most. After two minutes, the teacher says „the time is up“ and counts all the points. Then it is the second team’s turn. After all teams have had a go, the next round can start. The vocabulary in this particular presentation is at A2 or B1 level. it is slightly harder than in Say the Word 1.
