Speed Dating Game - ESL Activity

The ‘Speed Dating Game’ is a great way for students to practice their communication skills.

I played this game in my classes and they loved it! I did this with my 2nd grade middle
school students and they had a blast. 10 students on one side and 10 on the other. The game took about 40 minutes.

The video questions are tailored for intermediate/advanced students but can be easily changed for lower level students.

Check out the video for instructions on how to play the game.
The slides on the video go by fast, so pause when needed.

Have fun teaching!

Glad you shared this teaching activity, chuckd. I’m always pleased to see postings like this on the Teaching English in Taiwan board. Hope you will post some more activities in the future!

I like those teaching English in Taiwan post, too.
They can help you a lot with the teaching English in Taiwan.
If you ever go teaching English in Taiwan don’t miss the overture keywords.

Please! If that’s another one of those suspicious posts where the OP never comes back, don’t take me too serious when I start with sarcasm, cause I am potentially a narcissist.
