ESL Countable and Uncountable Nouns Game - Matching and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 30 minutes
This engaging activity can be used to teach students more advanced countable and uncountable nouns and which quantifiers and question words to use with each type of noun. The students are divided into pairs. Each pair is given a set of countable and uncountable noun cards which they shuffle and place face down in a pile. Students take it in turns to turn over a noun card and place it under a countable or uncountable noun heading. When the students have finished, the correct category for each noun is elicited from the class. For each correctly matched noun, pairs win one point. Pairs then race to win an extra point by making a meaningful sentence or question with the noun using a question word or quantifier from the board. The first pair to do this wins an extra point. The pair with the most points at the end of the game wins.
