This may look like a simple, first-day, time-killing conversation activity, but it’s not. It’s the ELT equivalent of rocket science! Students will have a ball and not realize that they have been tricked into the habit of asking Follow-up Questions and making Comments. This generates a lot of speaking – especially among first-day strangers. Do the game a week or two later and stand back. A howling good time. Students are primed and ready, and they already know the instructions.
