Speaking activity, especially good for higher-ability students. Take a stack of cards with words on them (I use my Kloo cards) and divide them between a small group. As the students are talking in TL (on any topic of your choice) they must get rid of their cards by using the word written on them in a sentence. For some groups you may want to allow them to have a “hand” of cards, for others you may insist they must use the word on top of their pack.

You could even hot up the competition further by allowing them to “steal” each others’ words for points.

I did this today for my AS level students, firing random exam-topic questions and challenging them to get rid of all of their cards. It often made for some very funny sentences!
