This is a fun ESL activity that can be used when practicing vocabulary and phrases.


  • Place two chairs in the front of and facing the class
  • Two students sit down
  • Write a word on the board so that they cannot see it
  • Have the other students give them clues without saying the word until one gets it
  • Then change seats and have a new set of students come forward

You can keep track of points for this if you like too. It's a pretty fun activity. For large classes (instead of just two chairs) you can place one chair for each group in the front of the classroom.
