  • Call My Bluff
    Split the class into teams of three people each. Give each team their own difficult word, and a written definition of its meaning. Each team must then write two false definitions of the word. To play, each team reads their difficult word and three possible meanings to the class - one correct and two false. The other teams must guess which is the correct meaning.
    For less advanced classes, the teacher can provide the false definitions as well as the right one, but this involves more preparation, and less English usage by the students.
