For those classes who are shyer to speak at the beginning, I like to give them an activity. By the end they find they are speaking merrily away.

You will need a blank piece of paper for each student as well as coloured markers. And most important... your own piece-de-resistance!

Each person needs to draw their name on the piece of paper - in as creative a way as possible, along with 3 things about themselves. It is important to tell them not to just write "tennis", for example, but to rather draw a tennis racquet or balls or someone playing on a court.

At the end of the allocated time they need to introduce themselves to those at their table using this as a springboard.

With not everyone being Van Gogh this brings loads of giggles and relaxes them no end.
