This Duel ESL game is super easy for every ages to understand and there is space for teachers creativity to change and make it more interesting flashcard game
For the duel Have two students stand back to back. Give them each a different flashcard to hold facing out and away from them.
When you say go, they walk three steps. Encourage other kids to count the the steps and on three the two kids turn to face each other and say what the other student has.
You can make it competitive with older kids in your other classes by adding questions for example a kid first asks “what do you see?” And the other kids answer “I see a hat”
This game is fun to do for all ages specially kids over 6 years old. But make sure like most of other esl games, explain it well for the first time to kids under 5 years old.
Flashcard duel game is best with small class size (3-6 kids) but medium size class (6-10 kids) would be fun as well. it takes time for larger classes unless it’s fine if a few kids don’t get a chance to play or teachers got plenty of time
No preparation is needed. Just have the flashcards for the target language or vocabulary ready. Good Luck!
