Answer me! (TEFLtastic classics Part Three)

A simple and very adaptable speaking game. If you like this and want more, please support TEFLtastic

Updated 15 February 2020

Another game which is simplicity itself. Students are dealt out cards with simple short answers on them and must get that reaction from their partner to be able to discard the card, with the first person with no cards left being the winner. For example, if you hold the card saying “I absolutely detest it” you won’t be able to discard that card if you ask me “How do you feel about washing up?” (“I don’t mind it”) but you will if you ask me “How do you feel about jazz?”
