"Picture This" is a guessing game for vocabulary.

This game is similar to "Pictionary". It involves drawing and guessing. It can be fun and it can get the whole classroom involved. You can use vocabulary from your lesson.


  • Pick a word and take a marker and begin to draw a picture on the board without telling your students what it is
  • Have your students guess what it is
  • Give the marker to the student who guesses correctly and have them draw next
  • Continue

After the student guesses correctly you can also have the class repeat the word together.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
