ESL Making Decisions Game - Reading, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

Here is a fun will for spontaneous decisions game to see how quickly students can decide things. The game covers making spontaneous decisions with 'will' and giving reasons for decisions. Students take it in turns to pick up a card and read the situation and question to the group. The first student to respond by making a decision with ‘will’ and giving a reason for their decision gets three points. The other students then have a chance to each get one point by making their own decision with ‘will’ and giving a reason. However, their responses must be different from the first student. If the first student doesn’t form their response correctly, another group member can challenge the student and be the first person to answer. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
