Password: This is a fun ESL speaking game that is challenging, interesting and fun. It makes an excellent way to review some vocabulary that you’ve taught, either at the end of the class or at the beginning of the next one. Check out this post for more details: Password ESL Speaking Game.
Disappearing Text: If you’re looking for a fun filler activity that helps students remember vocabulary and sentence structure, try out this game. You write up a sentence on the board, and gradually erase it. The challenge is that students have to remember what disappeared. More details: Disappearing Text Game.
Charades: If you’re looking for a fun game for a party or activity class, you’ll need to try out charades. It’s a sneaky way to review some vocabulary as well and is probably more beneficial for the students than just playing Uno or something like that. More details about how to set this activity up: Charades ESL Speaking Game.
Find Someone Who Speaking Bingo: If you want to have some fun, and help your students get to know each other at the beginning of the semester, you’ll need to try out this version of Bingo. It’s one of my favourite Kids ESL speaking games and I use it in most of my classes. More details: Find Someone Who Bingo Game.
ESL Board Games: I love to play board games in real-life, so I make my students play ESL ones in my classes. They always have a really fun time and want to play again the next time! Check out this short video where I explain how I use ESL board games in my own classes.
