ESL Game Close Your Eyes is a simple game for young learners to practice speaking on a number of topics. It is a simple way to practice vocabulary and descriptions for clothes, colours, classroom objects, flash cards or any target language can be used.
- First, choose a student and tell the student, “Look at ______. (another student in class)”
- Allow the student to examine the person or maybe an object in class for about five seconds. Then, direct the student to “close (their) eyes!”
- After the student have closed their eyes, ask him/her question about the person or object they examined before they closed their eyes. Ask the student a question. For example, What colour is John’s shirt? The student for example may respond ‘John’s shirt is green.’
- If the student gives an incorrect answer, then another student tries. Award points for correct answers.
- Enjoy and have fun!
