CRISTIANO RONALDO IS PORTUGUESE


by: Ms. Lestari

Level: Conversation One
Goals: to familiarize students with world map, to teach and/or review countries and nationalities.
Activity 1: read a map
Preparation:  teacher puts a world map on the wall/board and writes some nationalities on the board.
Procedure:
Divide the class into 2 teams. Each team sends one representative to play. The two players stand side by side. The teacher says one country. The players race to find the country in the map. The first player who finds the location wins fifty points. Then ask him/her to match the country with the nationality. If the answer is correct, he/she gets more fifty points. The game continues until all members of the teams get their turns. The winner is the team which gets more points than the other team.
Activity 2: back-to-back
Preparation: create vocabulary grids. There are two categories: countries and nationalities. In each grid, write the vocabulary words in half the boxes. A box containing a word in the first grid should be blank in the second grid, and vice versa.
Example grids:
Countries

A
B
C
D
E
1
France

Spain

Korea
2

Portugal

Iran


Nationalities

A
B
C
D
E
1

German

Mexican

2
Dutch

Turk

Swiss

Procedure:
Students work in pairs. Have students sit back to back. Distribute the grids, one category for one student. Each student must complete the grid with the correct vocabulary word.  Suppose student A is holding the ‘countries’ grid. Student A says: “2A”. Student B who is holding the ‘nationalities’ grid responds, “Dutch”. Student A should write “Netherlands” in 2A.
Students keep asking and answering alternately until they complete all the grids.  Inform students that this is a competition. The team which can finish first wins. (the idea of the game back-to-back is taken from Forum magazine)
