Money Talk

This is a great way to motivate students to speak English in the classroom and not their native language. Money is a motivator for everyone so this activity can be used with children and adults. I give each student in the class about 10$ in monopoly money, preferably in ones. Each time they speak their native language they have to give me a dollar. At the end of the class I write down how much each student has left. At the end of the month, they can redeem their money for prizes. I have a list of prizes and their money value. I find this is a positive way to enforce the use of english in the classroom and it also helps with discipline, and talking about money and values.
