Comparative and superlative adjectives are sometimes confusing but with the right ESL game, Students are willing to practice longer for a better understanding. Today’s game is suitable for both online and offline classes. There is no preparation needed. But students must know how to use any search engine (for this article we chose Google). The game is pretty simple, yet interesting enough to engage the students. It is a helpful activity on 1-1 classes as well. Besides, teachers can play it in Zoom for their online English classes using the “desktop screen share” option
We suggest to have a list of questions beforehand and check them with Google. It’s best using only those questions that their search result is as in the first screenshot or the answer is within the title of first page results as in the second screenshot
This would avoid wandering between pages to just find a single answer. Here we prepared a list of questions that are suitable for Google Search.
what is the largest country in the world?
what is the most expensive city in the world(China, Japan, Korea, Thailand)?
what’s the tallest building in the world?
what’s the best subject in school?
which one is faster cheetah or rabbit?
which one is easier english or chinese?
which one is healthier vegetables or meat?
Now that you have your questions ready, have students take out their phones or they can use computers in the school. divide them into as many teams as possible. Now ask the question and the team who say the answer out loud following the correct sentence structure is the winner.
Surely using Google (or any other search engines) is not possible for every age. We recommend only to play with adults and teenagers (12 years old and above)
This is a very adjustable game which can suit any class sizes from small to large.
Today’s game is quite helpful for reviewing comparative and superlative adjectives but if it’s not what you needed, please use our search engine to find the best ESL game.
