the Months Game:  The point of this game is to do something the latest in the year

  • put students in a circle (5-6 students per group)
  • deal out one month card to each student (you can use the months game cards for this.)
  • the first student can swap his card with the person to his left or pass. The person to his left must trade cards if asked.
  • go all the way around the circle and the last person can trade with the draw pile if she wants to.
  • each person goes around and announces (reads off) their month in the target language.
  • the person who did something latest in the year wins.  Or If you're using the perfect tense the person who has done something longer (earlier in the year) wins!


  • One person gets knocked out each round and then play continues until there is just one winner.  You can even have a winners table for people to advance to.  The losers at the winners table would return to their original groups.

You can just have them say the month, "January." Or, you can add more: "I went to Canada in January."  Also, you can use just about any other time reference question you can think of.

When did you go to the States? 'In August.'
How long have you played the piano? 'Since December.'
