What do you study on Monday afternoon?
I study English and Japanese.
- How many people are talking?
- What does Takeshi usually do?
- Holiday interview activity
This group activity gives students a chance to consider what they want to ask their peers (or the teacher) about - "What do you get on your birthday?"
I have a pencil. How about you?
I have two pencils.
- What are they talking about? (You could make it a multi-choice question. "Money, sports, or recycling?"
- What do they recycle? (Answer: bottles, books, magazines, and newspapers. It may take several students' answers to get all four.)
- What do you have (in your pencil case)?
In groups, students tip everything out of their pencil case, put a few items back and tell everyone what they have in their pencil case. Others in the group guess if it's the truth or a lie.
- Talk about family (practicing plurals)
Walk and talk. Students walk around, make pairs and have a chat. Tip: encourage repetition reactions (as shown in example below).
- I have a sister. How about you?
- I have two brothers.
- Two brothers? Wow! (example of repetition reaction)
- How about you?
In groups, students think up one thing they do regularly. Next, they venture out alone to talk to people from other groups and elicit information sharing with the phrase "How about you?" Teacher tip: encourage use of less often used verbs (i.e. try not to use "like").
I like pizza for dinner.
I eat bread every day.
I go to bed at 9pm.
How many CDs do you have?
I have five CDs.
- Yuki asks "How many .....?" What is her question?
- How many bottle caps does Takeshi have?
- How many pens do you have?
An extension of the "What do you have?" game (see section Program 4-2). The rules change just a bit, and students are asked to use a bit more English but if you did the "What do you have?" the week previous, you should be fine!
