Vocabulary building card games are wonderful for encouraging speaking, listening, reading and thinking skills in English classrooms! This game plays like UNO and to use a card students must think of 2 different words for relating to their card. There are 80 cards in the following categories: People, Places, Things, Verbs & Words.

Example: "Name 2 Places" Where you can buy food.

  • Your students must think of two different places. (Perhaps a grocery store and a restaurant.)*If the question is answered incorrectly, use the opportunity to discuss relevant answer options.
