Flashcard Duel ESL game is super easy to play with every age. Also, there is space for teachers’ creativity to change and make it an even more interesting flashcard game. For this ESL game, there is no preparation needed as long as teachers have flashcards.
For the duel have two students stand back to back. Give each one a different flashcard to hold facing out and away from them.
When you say go, they walk three steps. Encourage other students to count 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 students by adding questions for example when they face each other, a student first asks “what do you see?” And the other one answer “I see a hat”
