About this lesson:
This card game is an excerpt from Actively Engaged Online (ISBN 978-0-9938308-5-3) adapted for TeachersPayTeachers.com. I developed this card game for French-speaking ESL junior college students in Montreal, Canada.
This is a new twist on Go Fish. Since Go Fish games require learners to ask and answer questions, it provides a pedagogically useful way for learners to repeat target structures in a controlled and fun way. By including pictures, the target structures are made more comprehensible--and therefore available for acquisition.
