A collection of ESL teaching ideas!

    Split the class into teams. One student from each team comes to the front and faces away from the board. The teacher writes a word on the board. The teams must give definitions to the team member at the front of the class. The first student to guess the word wins a point for their team.
    As a variation, students can also be given three words which they cannot use in their definitions. For example, to define the word "rabbit", you could disallow the words "ears", "jump" and "carrot".
