I’ve had lots of requests this week for games to review for the end of term, so here are my Top Ten Review Games:
Quick simple no prep review. A little advanced.
Put up all the flashcards you’ve done around the room for total chaos fun! (Needs some verbs for this one)
This one always seems to crop up, it’s great for demos or when you have other teachers to help you. Ninja Tip: I did this one last in Kiev, and to remove the military connotations I called it “Samurai & Ninjas” You can of course call it anything you want, “Fluffy Pie Penguins” and “Marshmallow Minotaurs”??
This one is a bit different, you use all the mini cards you’ve done so far this year and play this cool board game.
More usually done as a warm up review, but can be stretched out to 15 to 20 minutes if you have the time!
This was always a favorite of mine for the end of training sessions. Lots of speaking and shouting across the room. Works great with adults too!
If you can use the gym or a balcony, this is one fun game!
One for the adult or advanced students here, just see what huge “conversations” they can come up with! (Also fantastic for business/entrepreneur classes)
Unleash your inner Donald Trump, Throw them all out and don’t let them back in. Or maybe not. (Needs preparation of passports for this one)
