Forming pairs or groups using nationalities

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Most dictionaries have a list of countries and their corresponding nationalities in the back. As a way to pair up students, I hand each student (or whisper it in their ear) a country and they have to mingle with the other students and ask what country they are from until they find their partner; but they must do so first asking as an adjective and responding as a noun (which most of the time is the same). For example, if a student is from Belgium and is talking to a student from Ethiopia, Student A asks, Are you Belgian? Student B responds, No, I am an Ethiopian.
