Password is an excellent way for students to practice circumlocution. In this game, they may not use any gestures or English.
Divide the class into two teams and pick one team to go first. That team sends a student to the "hot seat" with his back to the projector screen. Put 1:30 on a stopwatch and the team members have to EXPLAIN the word using circumlocution. I have used this game with my French 2 and they learn to get by with their limited vocabulary.
This Password Game uses vocabulary for the family (mom, dad, etc. as well as nicknames (papa, tonton, mamie, etc.) and more complicated family vocab (step dad, half sister, etc.).
