Any Level This is a wonderful activity if you think your class needs waking up a little. Choose a song that the students have or have not heard before. Choose pieces of vocabulary from the song and write them on separate pieces of paper. With lower level groups you may want to pronounce the words with the students first.
Stick each word to the board with putty blue tack. Put the students into 2 teams each one in a line before the board. When the 2 students at the front of their line hear a word in the song that is on the board they must race each other to grab that word from the board this can get quite violent!
They then go to the back of the line and it's up to the next pair. The team with the most words wins. I don't usually stop the tape so don't choose words that come one after the other.
If you want to make it more difficult you can put red herrings up. You can usually play the song a couple of times until they get all the words.

Remember also that men and women express themselves differently according to the make-up of the conversation group. That is, the group may be mixed gender, all male or all female, hence the type of exchanges will be different-the atmosphere too.
Furthermore, the group may be friends, work-mates, academics, a meeting If nothing else, it should generate chat. Put yes Y or no N for the sentences below.
Generally speaking, when I converse with people I know: I am a blunt person I criticise people I am a little sarcastic I ask a lot of questions in a conversation, to find out about people, their thoughts, etc I rarely admit I am wrong about something when I am in a conversation I make eye-contact and use body language in conversations I generalise I get personal with people in conversations; I may even gossip about a mutual friend I compliment people spontaneously I use four-letter words, coarse language I like to talk about myself I am a good listener I prefer to talk about non-personal topics, such as unemployment, the economy, current affairs I usually talk about personal problems, people, their way of being, hopes, desires, my family I get personal when I write a letter to someone, but not face to face in a conversation I help to keep a conversation flowing, I am not provocative, controversial, confrontational So, working on the previous assertions-and more-you can score the test the following way:reading are activities designed for students to study composi tion, vocabulary, and spelling.
