Definition Game


Level: Intermediate +

This game is probably best for intermediate to advanced learners as it requires the students to create their own definitions. Students try to catch each other out by creating a false definition to go along with the other false and true definitions. It´s a fun way to learn vocabulary as well as giving students good speaking, listening and writing practice. It also enables students to practice language that is typically used to define something, for example the relative clauses:

A thing which……
A person who ……
A place where…… 

I usually stretch this game out over several classes as a warmer or a filler. Once students are familiar with the game you can even get the students to choose a word from the dictionary and create their own cards!
