Improve your students’ travel vocabulary with this At The Airport game card set.

Students love playing games in their free time, be it video, mobile or tabletop games, but numerous studies have also shown the importance and positive impact games can have on learning. Incorporating games in your classroom can help your learners develop a positive relationship with the language and English lessons. While working with games, the teacher’s role changes from an instructor to a guide. This helps you to reduce teacher talking time and make the students the centre of the lesson.

Try this game with your students using our At The Airport Game Cards!!!

Calling the airline (intermediate/advanced):

  • Get students to work in pairs for this activity. Give five At The Airport cards each; they can be either picture or word cards.
  • Students will do a role play in which one of them will be a customer calling an airline to confirm their flight details, and the other will be the airline customer service representative who takes their call.
  • Each student will try to sneak in the words in their cards in their conversation, putting the card on the table when they do.
    • A to B: Hello, [Onestopenglish Airlines]; how can I help you?
    • B to A: Hi, My name is [John Smith]. I’m calling to confirm my flight information. I’m travelling from [New York to London], and I want to ensure I go to the correct airport. [Puts airport card on the table]
    • A to B: Certainly, Mr Smith. Do you have your digital or printed boarding pass at hand? [Puts boarding pass card on the table]
  • The player who uses their five cards faster wins.
