Fun ESL Games – I Did!

This is a fun ESL game…in fact, out of all of the fun ESL games that I know ~ THIS ONE IS THE BEST.
The reason why this game is the best is because it teaches speaking and listening at the same time.

First have all of your students stand up. Then the teacher will ask the class a question, “Who ate noodles for lunch?” If any of the students ate noodles for lunch they will yell, “I did!” and then sit down. Then the teacher will ask the same question but with a different noun, “Who ate an orange for lunch?” If any of the students ate an orange for lunch they will yell, ” I did.”

There are no winners. It doesn’t matter if the student sits down first or last. It is just a fun exercise that will help your students listen more efficiently.

Once all of the students are sitting in the their chairs…ask them to all stand up again. Now you can ask one of the students to act as the teacher.

The student that you select will now ask the class the questions, including the teacher. This student may ask some question such as, “Who watched TV last night?” “Who played computer last night?” “Who did homework last night?” “Who played basketball last night?”

The students really love to play this game, and it gives students a chance to use past tense, future tense and present tense.

“Who is going to the park after school?” I am!
“Who is going to department store after school? I am!
“Who is going to the beach after school?” I am!
“Who is going to their friend’s house after school?” I am!

“Who went to bed at ten o’clock last night?” I did!
“Who went to bed at nine thirty last night?” I did!
“Who went to bed at midnight last night?” I did!

The teacher or the students can ask any type of question, as long as it is appropriate. And you can make it more difficult by telling the students to ask present tense questions, past tense questions and future tense questions.

This is one of the most fun ESL games that I know. I hope that you can incorporate this into your lesson plans!

Computers and Cheap Watches

There are tons of expensive watches out there that cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. The majority of these watches are all classic, mechanical pieces that have so many features it makes telling time incredibly difficult. What is the point of spending all that money for something that is not even going to serve the intended purpose? That is why one should greatly consider computer powered, cheap watches, also known as digital watches.Although many digital watches have a very low cost, there are many out there that can be almost as expensive as traditional watches. If you want a watch to look classy, then there is no point in shelling out tons of cash for a good looking digital watch, so those should be avoided. If you want to save money, then a digital watch is perfect for you. You can get a fairly decent digital watch for between twenty and fifty dollars, and there are some out there that are as low as ten dollars, but the quality of said watches is very low.Digital watches are great because they cost so little and serve the purpose of a watch exceptionally well. With a traditional watch, it can be somewhat difficult to tell the time, at least at a moment’s notice. Digital watches enable you to look quickly down at your hand and know the time right to the second, as long as the time you set it to is accurate.As computers and technology become more sophisticated, so will digital watches. Already at this point in time, there are many watches that have features that used to be found only in decades old computers. Thinking about that, it is amazing to think how far we have progressed. Who knows, perhaps we will be playing three dimensional games on our watches in just a few years. With the way things are going, that is not too far out there.
