A-Z ESL warmer is one of the simplest of all. No preparation is needed and every student is able to play because instruction is just one line but of course there are ways to make it challenging and fun. Good thing is A-Z ESL warm up suits online and offline classes regardless of how many students are there. moreover, it’s a helpful ESL warmer to understand the level of students especially if they are new in the class.
Start off by using A to say a word starting with A. Next we think of a letter and The next ESL student need to come up with a word starting with our chosen letter. Then it’s their turn to choose a letter and the other student create the word with it. But it doesn’t end here. After warming up their brain for harder and more specific words, together choose a category such as animal, food, or any other categories depending on their level and continue the game until someone is out of word.
Especially for online classes, this warm up is quite fun. Besides, A-Z really helps to set their mind for an online English class instantly.
Warm up every type of students with any age. But of course we need to keep in mind about their language level. ESL students who just started learning English might have a hard time thinking a word or they may not know any word in English.
the ESL warmer is perfect for small to medium classes. However, large classes are able to play as everyone just need to come up with one single word. For larger classes a timer would be very helpful to avoid wasting time.
