Quiz Show

This game is great for listening and speaking. It is to be played like Jeopardy with a grid on the board. The questions in each category are numbered 1-5 in increasing difficulty. The corresponding point system gives 100 points for #1 questions, 200 points for #2 questions., etc. They played in teams and if one team didn't know the answer I allowed another team to try for it. These questions are tailored to South Korean High School students. They loved it and it took the entire 50 minute period! Have fun : )
