Introduction game



Donated by Marjolein

What do you need?

  • A group of young people that you don't know yet!
  • Blackboard Crayons

How does it work?
This game is a way to get to know your students and to train their English pronunciation. You can play this game with a maximum of 15 students. One of the students starts by telling his or her name and adds something they like to do. Student number two repeats this and adds his own sentence, this continues until the whole group has been introduced.

Student 1: 
My name is Louise and I like to read a book (mimics reading a book).
Student 2: 
Her name is Louise and she likes to read a book (mimics reading a book). And my name is Susan and I like to jump (Jumps) etc.

What else do I need to know?
As a teacher you can write down the names and the things they like to do on a board. This helps the students memorizing all the names and things.

What is the purpose of this activity?
This game makes it easy to get to now each other. The students not only have to remember all the things other students have said, they also learn more about them. By writing down the names during the game not only the students benefit from this game but you as their teacher get to know your students.
