Great Teaching Activities for the ESL Classroom: English Whispers and a Cup of Conversation

This game really tests listening and speaking skills and encourages teamwork. To make it more enjoyable, add a competitive element. Split the class into teams, and the team that more closely matches the original phrase scores a point.

Cup of Conversation is another good warmer to improve your students’ fluency. Students pick topics from a cup and discuss it in pairs, and then change topics and swap partners.
