This is excellent for testing after a pronounciation drilling lesson.
The game is simply this; A person is volunteered to start off the game by coming to the front of the class and holding some strenuous physical position like doing push ups or sit ups. While this person is diong this a word to be pronounced is put on the board and the class tries to rescue the poor soul dying from exhaustion on the floor by pronouncing the word properly. The teacher doesn't have to worry about getting a response from a quiet group as the person on the floor is not allowed to cease until the word has been pronounced properly which makes for a very angry and verbal person doing the physical exertion if nobody gets the right pronounciation.
