  • The aim of the game : The learners predict what to do with a list of pairs of game objects, check their answers by playing the game and then write down the answers using the passive voice. Prepare to play: Choose an adventure game and start playing it. As you play, make a note of what you do with the objects that appear in the game (or use the walkthrough to save time) and produce a list similar to the example below. Make a copy of this list for each learner. You will also need to use online dictionaries. Play: Hand out the list of objects and tell the learners they are to guess how they are used together in the game. Ask the learners to talk together in groups of three and to use the online dictionaries to find out the meaning of the words they do not understand. After fifteen minutes, stop them and ask them to tell you what they think the relationship is between each pair of objects in the game: e.g. I think you use the hairpin to open the shed, etc. They then play the game together. The game should be easier to play because they know which objects they need to use together, but if they get stuck, encourage them to read the walkthrough to find out what to do next. Finally, once they have played the game (or part of the game if it's long), ask them to look again at the pairs of words and to write about them. Encourage the use of the passive voice here: e.g. The hairpin is used to open the shed, etc. Play on: The learners can continue playing the game and finish off writing passive sentences about the objects.
