So, Neither or Nor?

ESL Agreeing Game - Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

In this fun agreeing activity, students play a game where they race to agree with statements using so, neither or nor. Give each group of four a set of agreement cards and a set of topic cards. The students shuffle each set of cards and place them face down on the table in two piles. One student begins by turning over a topic card from the pile and placing it face up on the table for everyone to see, e.g. sports. The student then picks up the agreement cards and looks at the phrase on the first card without showing it to anyone, e.g. 'So do I'. A member of the group then starts to time one minute. The student then tries to make one of the other students say the phrase written on the card by making a statement related to the topic, e.g. 'I sometimes play football in the park'. The first student to agree to the statement using the correct phrase wins and keeps the card. The student then looks at the next phrase and makes another statement relating to the topic, trying to get through as many so, neither or nor cards as possible before the time limit is up. When the time limit has been reached, the students count up their agreement cards, scoring a point for each one. The agreement cards are then collected in, reshuffled and it's the next student's turn to turn over a topic card and make statements to elicit the phrases on the cards. The game continues until all the topic cards have been used. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.
