Here is a project I have been working on for a few weeks now and I am pretty happy about it!
If like me you are running out of ideas to help your students practice part 3 of the Trinity spoken examination this activity is what you need.
You don’t prepare your students for the Trinity examination? This speaking/vocabulary activity is still worth a try.
The idea is to basically play a reversed taboo. Each of the topics (Trinity ISE II) have 18 cards. Each card contains a different question that the students must answer using the 3 words/expressions provided on the cards. This way you make sure the students use more interesting vocabulary.
I play the game as it is but there are many different ways you could play it:
- use a die (each topic is assigned a number and 6 is a free question).
- use a board game that mayches the colours of the cards (to be then played like a Trivia).
- use only one of the topic to renforce the vocabulary of a specific topic.
- have your students guess what the words on their classmates’ cards are.
Just print this document double sided, cut it and it’s ready!
