    Dear Alex, thank you for making all these games available. I especially thought the Word plus prepositon would be a great game but…

    Please, please, please….I can’t find the instructions anywhere, also not in the link posted under the game: https://tefltastic.wordpress.com/2012/08/26/snap-and-pelmanism-in-efl-classes/

    HELP!!! I’m on a CELTA training course and I handed this game in as Freer Practice for my assignment ‘Focus on the Learner’ but I need to resubmit because the rules were missing. I tried figuring out the rules for myself; the original rules for SNAP are much too complicated for an Upper Intermediate level.

    Thanks in advance really hope you can get back to me on time to rer-submit my assignment.

    cheers, John

    Hi John

    Hope I’m in time – I’ve only just seen this.

    Basically, if the same preposition is missing from two cards then it’s a match, like two cards having the same number in normal pelmanism/ memory game/ pairs or in normal snap. If you click on some of the examples of snap and pelmanism in the link you’ll see other explanations of the game, some of which are designed for students. I’ve never had any problems explaining it to students myself, but you could demonstrate with normal playing cards first.

    … it wouldn’t be particularly free practice though…

    Thank you very much….no you replied immediately, I’m just stressing because well….you must know what CELTA’s like. You’re absolutely right, it’s NOT freer practice though. I wrote in my assignment about one of the student’s problems was:

    “C. Writing – prepositions
    British Council says that the best way of gaining control over prepositions is through a lot of exposure to authentic language [6] which is what is needed here. This activity is a card came adaption of SNAP!: ‘Word plus Preposition SNAP!’ which entails matching the right preposition to a word.”

    I need to re-submit because the rules were missing and I completely agree. I haven’t played SNAP for 30 years. Your explanation makes great sense…thanks so much for that.

    P.S. Just purchased the ‘telephone phrases’ book…I hope that is a way to support you
