Have your students increase their holiday and travel vocabulary with these game cards.

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. By incorporating games in your classroom you 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.

Story Telling: My last vacation

  • Give each student 5 cards and give them a few minutes to think about their last (or their favourite) holiday.
  • They should come up with a few facts about their trip, but also make up or invent others, but they must always use the cards they have.
  • Students that are listening to the story can call out anything that seems unusual or untrue. 
  • Story teller “comes clean” and tells their classmate which parts of the story where “true”.

When working with games, let loose your creativity to build a motivating environment in your classroom. Remember that emotions are an important part of the learning process! Enjoy this material with your class and let us know how you liked it!
