This one is great for groups (at least 9 participants or more) and lower levels (A1-A2). It can be adapted to any grammar point or vocabulary.
- Distribute the handout. (see sample handout below called “can you”)
- Ask a learner to model the dialog/interview. Explain that if the person answers with YES, the asker may write the answerer’s name in the box below the picture. For groups that can handle it, you can request that they ask a follow-up question. If the person answers NO, then nothing is written. They may ask another question to the same person.
- The learners move around the room interviewing their classmates (The trainer can also take part). When they have completed their BINGO card, they sit down.
- The trainer then calls out the learners names one at a time at random. Those who have that person’s name, should mark the box with an X. Whoever has a row (vertical, horizontal, diagonal) shouts BINGO! Then, to confirm the win, they read out their row, e.g. Marco can repair cars, Teresa can swim, and Paulo can ride a horse. The winner can get a point or a candy/sticker or other reward.
Alternative: Instead of using a photo, use a photo AND a word/phrase or only a word/phrase in the box.
This is game can not be adapted to 1-1.
