Hi Mark and everybody here,
please, HELP me with the SLAM game!
I read on http://www.mes-english.com/games/moregamestoplay.php
the rules. It sounds great. It's the game, that I'd like to try in class, but I don't understand exactly how it works:
"One person from each team begins by saying the vocabulary or phrase associated with the first flash card and then the next and so on until the two teams meet somewhere in the middle."
1. Do the two players from the both teams say the given words or phrases in turn or in the same time – in competitive manner - who will be faster? Or should the whole team say the world with their player together in turn with the other team?
2. What does happen if one player doesn’t know the vocabulary word? Does he has to go to the back of his line – like as the looser after playing rock-paper-scissors - and the next person from his team starts with the first card again?
3. How to keep discipline playing this game? If there are many students in class, do the players not get boring waiting in line? What is the best number of players for this game?
Could anybody explain this?
Thanks in advance!
