34 IELTS Speaking games

My IELTS articles and worksheets pages have always had plenty of ideas for games, but they’ve been somewhat hidden under the other more boring but at least as useful activities like students making their own questions with typical question stems and choosing which exam tips are and are not true. I’ve therefore put together an article and list of handouts which can all be said to be actual games, including quite a few new ideas:
