  • To encourage students to respond to each other’s ranking suggestions
  • The conditions or ‘targets’ can be many and varied. It ALMOST doesn’t matter as the point of putting a condition there is to cause students to think their sentences through carefully as they build them. It makes them much more aware of what they’re saying. And making a sentence of exactly 8 words will involve usually a very short clause with ‘weil’ or two clauses linked with ‘und’ or additional details like when and where. So they focus on different ways to make their sentences longer. It also works well to set >9 words or <5 words at times too.
  • Given a specific topic to talk about (or a set of questions if appropriate), students have to try to include each thing from the Bingo grid. When they do, they cross off the box and in their pairs, it’s the first person to cross everything off who wins (full house).
  • Anna’s TES resources reminded me of this one! She calls it Trapdoor and it’s brilliant for a) memory and b) speaking (repetition with a reason!) It’s a competitive game in pairs. Each chooses and option for each sentence in their head. One starts reading out loud, trying to anticipate the other’s choices. Each time they make a choice, the partner either nods or shakes his/her head. If the choice is wrong, play passes to the partner who starts the same process. If it is the right choice, the student gets to continue. The aim is to get to the end first. Answers don’t change, so this is also a great memory developer.

  • Millionaire Who wants to be a millionaire? A great teaching game! A sense of competition adds a reason for student to talk. GCSEHow can we make them talk? Contestants have three lifelines: 1. They can phone a friend – and ask them the answer in 30 seconds 2. They can opt for 50:50 – and have two wrong answers taken away 3. They can ask the audience – i.e. their friends They can only use each lifeline once.

This time, rather than speaking for as long as you can, you need to try and include the words below and ‘spend’ the words as you answer your 5 questions. Your partner will cross them off as you use them and you need to do the same for your partner. The first to use up all the words is the winner.
  • Opinion Present Future Reason Time expression Comparison Complexity Past Reference to others Talk about your family
  • Interviews Students can conduct interviews on selected topics with various people. It is a good idea that the teacher provides a rubric to students so that they know what type of questions they can ask or what path to follow, but students should prepare their own interview questions. After interviews, each student can present their findings.
  • The key elements needed to get higher grades need to be emphasised
  • IMPORTANT!!!!!! •Results •Opinions •Tenses •Extended language GCSEHow can we make them talk?
  • Keeping their attention! Think about the length of lessons. If you have slots that are longer than 25 minutes, you’ll need to think about the number of activities to cover. Pupils learn in different ways. Some respond well to the written word, others to pictures, others to sound, others to very active tasks. Try and include different types of activities in your work to appeal to different learner types. Vary your approach from week to week. GCSEHow can we make them talk?

  • Picture Describing Another way to make use of pictures is to give students just one picture and have them describe what it is in the picture. For this activity students can form groups and each group is given a different picture. Students discuss the picture with their groups, then a spokesperson for each group describes the picture to the whole class.
  • Spot the Difference For this activity students can work in pairs and each couple is given two different pictures, for example, picture of boys playing football and another picture of girls playing tennis. Students in pairs discuss the similarities and/or differences in the pictures.
