Translation Game

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

The Translation Game flies in the face of the idea that we only use English in the classroom but the students LERV IT.
Similar rules as 'Back to the Board' - Suits two teams of 4 - 6.
One member of each team ('The Translator') sits with their back to the whiteboard. Team members, all facing the board, close in around their Translator. The teacher writes a sentence in English on the whiteboard. Teams translate from English to L1, usually via screaming at the top of their voices - no English permitted!
Translator translates back into English, with considerable prompting from team members - translation must be perfect. This game promotes heaps of hilarity and competitiveness.
