@Whilst I'm travelling I have to learn langauges pretty quickly. Shopping and eating are the main things I need the language for, so after the numbers and "How much?", I find that "bigger/smaller/cheaper" as well as "slower please" ( to slow people's speech down) are really useful.

In the classroom or at home ........

Get a series of fun objects that are different sizes ( e.g. clothes etc.). The teacher asks "Is this OK?" and the kids shout out "No, bigger/smaller/cheaper please", you then bring out a bigger/smaller or cheaper one, so four lines in total!






Is this OK?
No, bigger please!





Is this OK?
No, bigger please!





Is this OK?
No, bigger please!




Is this OK?
Thatfs great!






For faster/slower get a few genki kids to come out front and dance, then tell them to go slower or faster!

Once you've done this song, and if you have previously done the "How much?" song, then a great follow up is the Bargaining Game!


Recommended Game: Bargaining Game

Or VIP Members can check out the worksheet to go with the song.

In video...

Colin has also sent in this really cool video of his kids playing around with the Bigger Please vocab!
