Charades: make little cards each with a verb written on it, such as..."swimming". Have 2 teams. Invite one person to the front. He/She chooses a card from the hat...reads it privately...then must act this verb to their team...the hands go up...you choose a person from the actors team first...if they get it correct, that team gets a point...if not then you choose a hand from the other team and vice versa until the action is identitified with an English word.
P.S. you can expand the game by using simple and amusing language forms on the cards, such as "I can't swim". The correct answer will be "you can't swim". Good fun and not dissimilar to "Whose line is it Anyway's" guess the Ailment of the Party-goer game, (an expansion possibility with adjectives thrown in the mix).
