ESL Games - Categories

A basic game but lots of fun for students and good workout for vocabulary.

The students write 6 or 7 different categories, for example Country, Adjective, Irregular Verb, Profession etc. The trainer then gives them a letter and the students have to fill the categories with words beginning with this letter.

Example B: Brazil, Big, Be, Baker etc.

If they all have the same word for each category: 5 points each; different words 10 points; and if only one person can get a word 20 points.

Lots of fun.
