  22. 22. Leading a Workshop: Warm-ups • First Impressions – Ask students to tell you what they think about your country. Write them on the board and relate back to them throughout your presentation. See how many impressions they had were accurate! • Language – Begin speaking your language and have students guess what you are saying. Teach them several phrases and have them practice in pairs. • Name Games -- It’s great to learn students’ names, especially in small groups. Have the students introduce themselves and share an interesting fact about themselves. • Games – Play Rock, Paper, Scissor (or a similar game) in your language. Play a True or False game with fun facts about your country. Winner gets a round of applause! • Picture Guess -- Choose a photo representative of your culture or the topic of your presentation. Have the students guess what the photo is of and why it’s significant.
