ESL CONVERSATION GAMES – THE SEQUEL TO ESL CONVERSATION GAMES 1 Living in Asia for the past five years of my life... I have learned many things. One of those things that would never work in Canada, but works surprising well in Asia is this ESL Conversation Game: The Pop Up Pirate Barrel Game Teaching English in Asia can and is meant to be very rewarding. It can change your life and open yourself up to new cultures. There is no better way to meet new people and be introduced to new people than by having fun with people. One fun way to get students/friends in a good mood is to play a fun esl conversation game. This ESL conversation game is called the Pop Up Pirate Barrel Game. Any ESL teacher can use this game to liven up a class; or they can use it as an end to a long hard class. In this game you have a plastic barrel with 48 slots cut out of the barrel and a pirate in the hole of the middle on the top of the barrel. There are four different color plastic swords: Red, green, blue and yellow swords. This game is designed to have 4 teams. So the teacher will divide the class into four different teams. The teacher will eventually give the red team the red swords; the blue team the blue swords; the yellow team the yellow swords and the green team the green swords. But before you give out the swords it is recommended that you ask every student some English questions / conversation questions before you give them the swords. After the ESL teacher has asked all the students questions, and the students have all answered them correctly you can begin to play the esl conversation game. One ESL student per team gets to put one sword into one slot. The red team goes, then the blue team, then the yellow team and the green team goes last. If the student chooses the slot that makes the Pirate jump out of the barrel -that team wins the game. You can also play ~ every time that one team makes the Pirate jump out of the Barrel; that team gets one point. Be creative with this game. Do whatever works best for class! Have fun and Teach English! http://www.squidoo.com/eslgames_hgb

ESL CONVERSATION GAMES – THE SEQUEL TO ESL CONVERSATION GAMES 1 This ESL Conversation Game is called, "The Phonics Game." This esl teaching game is very easy to play and the students absolutely love it. First - You will need to make a giant grid on the board. On the top of the grid you will write the numbers 1 - 10; and draw vertical lines in between the numbers. Second - You will need to write the letters A - J on the far left side. Now the esl students will easily be able to select any box from the grid. IE. 3A / 6J / 1D, etc., etc. Before class time (during your preparation time), you should draw this same grid on a piece of paper. In each box you will write a number from 1 - 10. On the class blackboard you will now fill in each box with a Phonics word from the student's Phonics book; this game can also be played using any other book. (Obvious, right?) Now... divide the class into teams. I usually divide my class into four teams, but you can divide them into however many teams as you wish. And give each team a Team name. You can let the student's pick or you can just write, "Team 1," "Team 2," "Team 3," "Team 4." The ESL students will the play, "Paper, Scissors, Stone!" to see who goes first, second, third and last. After all of the above is taken care of... you can start playing this fun esl conversation game. From the team that gets to go first... one ESL student will stand up and make up a sentence using one of the words in the grid. If he/she makes up a sentence and says it using proper grammar ~ the teacher will erase the word, look on his/her piece of paper, see how many points are in that box and give that student's team that many points. Keep playing this game until all of the words have been used. The team with the most amount of points at the end of the game are the winners!
