Presentations Pelmanism

Business English Presentation Language Game - Vocabulary: Matching, Pelmanism - Group Work - Intermediate (B1) - 20 minutes

In this free business presentations language game, students match presentation expressions to parts of a presentation. In pairs, students take turns turning over one presentation card and one expression card. If the presentation part matches the expression (e.g. 'Opening a Presentation' and 'Thank you for coming.'), the student reads the two cards aloud, keeps them and has another turn. If the two cards don't match, the student turns them back over, keeping them in the same place. There are 20 presentation expressions in total - two expressions for each part of a presentation. The student with the most pairs of cards at the end of the game wins. Afterwards, check the correct answers with the class and elicit other possible expressions for each part of a presentation.

Presentation Vocabulary Challenge

Business English Presentation Language Game - Vocabulary and Speaking: Impromptu Speech - Pair Work - Upper-intermediate (B2) - 25 minutes

In this engaging business presentation vocabulary game, students talk about words or phrases related to business presentations for 30 seconds. First, students add five business presentation words to their grid on the worksheet. Students then take turns calling out coordinates for the second grid. The other student tells them the corresponding business presentation word or phrase for that square. The student then talks about the word or phrase for 30 seconds, without stopping. Students can talk about things like the meaning of the presentation word, its importance, how it refers to presentations, etc. If the student successfully talks about the word or phrase for 30 seconds, they write the word in the second grid, and the other student crosses the word off their grid. If the student is unsuccessful, they can choose the same word or phrase again or pick another grid reference on their next turn. The first student to get five words in a row wins the game.
