This is a popular icebreaker for teaching ESL. It will work with most levels except beginners or maybe very young children.
This is a good icebreaker. If time permits you can give the students a turn after you have finished.
- Create a list of four things about yourself (true & false). Like: I am from the USA, I have two sisters, My favorite food is pizza, etc.
- Write them on the board
- Pick a student to read the first one
- Ask those who think it's true and then false to raise their hands
- After everyone has said what they think tell them the truth
