Getting to Know You - ESL EFL Worksheets, Activities and Games

Getting to Know You

ESL EFL Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 40 minutes

Here is an intriguing worksheet activity for the first day of class to help students get to know each other and find out interesting facts about one another. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Students look at incomplete personal information statements at the top of the worksheet and write the questions they need to ask in order to complete the statements, e.g. 'What's your earliest memory?' After the questions have been checked, the students go around the classroom asking each question to a different classmate and completing the statements with answers, e.g. 'Sophia's earliest memory is feeding ducks in the park'. When the students have finished, they share what they found out about each other in small groups and then with the class.

A to Z

ESL EFL Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 40 minutes

This insightful speaking activity can be used on the first day of class to help students get to know each other. The class is divided into groups of three or four. Each group is given a set of alphabet cards and a set of questions. The students shuffle the alphabet cards and place them face down in a pile on the desk. The first student picks up the top alphabet card from the pile and looks at the corresponding topic and question on the worksheet. The student then tells the group the topic and asks the other students the corresponding question. Each student answers the question in turn and the students generate a short discussion on the topic if possible. The next student then picks up an alphabet card and the process continues. When the students have gone through all the cards and questions, there is a class feedback session where groups share any interesting or surprising information they found out about their classmates.

True or False?

ESL EFL Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 40 minutes

In this enjoyable icebreaker activity, students play a game where they give true and false personal information and their classmates ask questions to help them decide if the information is true or false. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Working alone, the students complete ten personal information statements on the worksheet. Five of the statements must be true and five must be false. Students indicate which statement is which by putting a tick for true or a cross for false in the column marked 'You' on the worksheet. When the students have finished writing, they are divided into groups of four. The students write the names of the other students at the top of the three columns on the worksheet. Students then take it in turns to read their ten statements to the group. As the students listen to each statement, they ask questions to help them decide if the reader is lying or telling the truth. Students then decide if the statement is true or false by marking their guess with a tick or cross in the table. Afterwards, the students reveal which statements were true and which were false. Students score one point for each correct guess. The student with the most points wins the game. Afterwards, students tell the class anything interesting or surprising they found out about their classmates.
