The #1 ... (conversational game)

Number One** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Just the BEST.

Pass the Paper

There are many conversational games but I have found none so popular and powerful as "Pass the Paper".


We have many pre made Pass the Paper games on EFL Classroom 2.0 (for supporters but also available on Digital Resources. But you can also do it low tech, without a powerpoint. However, I like the ppts because you can just set a slide transition interval and it takes care of itself and you are free to wander the classroom - helping, monitoring.

What is it? Basically, the students are in a group with one crumpled piece of paper among them. The music plays and they "Pass the Paper" . When the music stops, the one with the paper must do something preset by the teacher. It can be many things.

1. Answer the question on the ppt.

2. Do something the group asks.

3. Answer a question the group asks (with target language the teacher has on the board. ie. Have you ever ......?)

4. Finish a sentence or expression on the powerpoint.

5. Truth or Dare (for higher levels).

I've used this game to good effect at workshops as an icebreaker. See below and example of the many available in our resources.

Try "Pass the Paper", it really lowers the affective filter of students and gets them relaxed and learning English without even knowing it!
