What I do in class is tell them to take one text that they have received from their friends and translate it to English. More if they like. Then at the end of the week, they will use those words or sentences to make a story out of it. It works really well cause the students find it amusing.
The other thing I do is allow them to engage in online games that are approved for their age where there are a lot of students online to chat with.
Hope this helps!
