- Create a set of card with famous people, professions, animals etc. Give one set to each pair of learners. The deck is split in two and one half given to each player.
- Explain that the learners will flip over one card each, simultaneously. These two cards then “battle”.
- The learners take turns making a sentence about the cards. For example, if Learner A turns over Batman and Learner B turns over Angela Merkel, Learner A might say: Batman is much stronger than Angela Merkel. Learner be: Angela Merkel has more political power and can call an army. The learners continue until they decide which card wins.
