ESL Games: Learning English with ESL games: The Who am I? esl game.


Who am I? Game

This is a fun conversation activity that can get the whole class involved for as little or long time as you want them to.

Procedure: Take small index cards and write the names of famous people on them. Tape these to the students’ backs and have them walk around the class asking yes / no questions to guess who they are. For example: Am I a man? Am I a singer? Am I a real person? Am I Canadian? Am I alive still? Was I an actor? The trick is to make sure you use names of people that all of the students will know. If your class is made up of students from many countries you can't go with local celebrities from a certain country. Once the student guesses who they are you can give them a new name and they are again off to the races. **Be sure that each student asks only 2 or 3 questions to any 1 person. This prevents them from getting in groups and remaining there for the whole activity. The purpose is to socialize. You can use funny ones like "Casa Nova", other names could include Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, Ghandi, Elvis Presley, Spiderman, etc. Have fun.
