In this post, we introduce a very quick warm up for adults which can help their writing and it is also a good way to test any ESL student’s English proficiency. The game is called “What Do You Know?“
First off, have a timer set to 3 to 5 minutes. Before starting the timer, choose a word such as “pizza” or “football”. Teachers can also choose any topic instead of the word like “fruits” or “sports”.
Now on count of three ESL students start writing down whatever they know about the word or topic. For more challenges have students to write in a certain grammar or sentence structure.
For more fun, students team up and give score to the each correct fact.
This is a quick warm up for adults and teenagers as well. Not a suitable activity for children.
There is no limit in students number to play quick warm up. This can be a group ESL activity or the whole class are participating together
