Pictures for Describing People
This one is not by any means revolutionary, but is a tried and tested activity and pretty darn effective at practicing vocabulary about how people look.
- After you have introduced vocabulary to describe people, spread out many photos of different people on the table (or put many on an A4 page and print for each participant).
- Next, I choose one of the photos (but don’t disclose this to the participants) and describe the person. They all listen and look at the photos. The first one to guess is the next person to describe.
- Continue until everyone has had a chance.
1-1: This works perfectly for 1-1 lessons.
