Guess Who?

ESL and EFL lesson on the parts of the face.

Ever play the game Guess Who? You know the one where you and your partner have a bunch of tiles representing different people and you have to ask yes/no questions to guess which person your partner has in mind.

I love that game for beginner ESL. Only it costs a lot of money to buy one for each pair of students. So I created a modified version of this in a PowerPoint. The presentation also includes a couple of introductory exercises to practice the vocabulary of the different parts of the face.

I placed the fully downloadable presentation on Teachers Pay Teachers. At $2.99, it will save you some precious prep time. Get it here: Parts of the Face

Here is a sneak peek of the lesson:

Can you spot the lie?

Can you spot the lie? We would play this game for hours in long car rides. The object is to tell two things about yourself that are true and one thing that is false. The other participants have to say which they think is the lie.


  • Each player thinks of three anecdotes. Two should be true and one should be false.
  • Each player takes turns saying their anecdotes.
  •  The other players have to say which anecdote is a lie.

That’s it. It’s a simple game that can be tons of fun. Let me know how it goes.
