When did you last feel...?
ESL Adjectives to Describe Feelings & Emotions Game - Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 30 minutes
In this entertaining activity, students review advanced adjectives of feeling and emotion by playing a board game where they give true or false answers about when they last felt a certain way. Each group of three or four is given a copy of the game board, a set of true or false cards, a dice and counters. The students shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile next to the game board. The players then take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When a player lands on a square, they pick up a true or false card from the pile and look at it, without showing anyone. The group members then ask the player the 'When did you last feel...?' question on the square, e.g. 'When did you last feel charitable?' The player then answers the question by giving either true or false information as indicated on the card. When the player has answered the question, the other students ask follow-up questions to determine if the player is lying or telling the truth. After a few questions have been answered, the other students guess whether the player's answer is true or false. The player then reveals the answer. The students who guessed correctly each score one point. The next player then rolls the dice and so on. When a player reaches the finish, the game ends and the points are added up. The student with the most points wins the game. This game can also be played without the true or false element. In this version, when a player lands on a square, they answer the question and talk about the topic for one minute without stopping.
