Another listing style speaking activity.

Go around the class in a specific order (around the seating plan, by the register…etc) and get each student to say one item of vocabulary. Time the class. They will ALMOST always beg you for another go to beat their time. This time you can practise accuracy.

It has so far worked well for…

  • Numbers
  • Food
  • Telling the time

To make it harder, specify no repeats so they have to listen to each other. You can also rub out common pronunciation errors too, as it makes them easy to spot.

More topics in comments below! Also, how could this be expanded beyond simple vocab?
