BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a simple activity to get students to speak to each other while using the target grammar. 





  1. Tell students that this is a guessing game, so they should not show let the students around them see their selections.
  2. Have students select one character from the top portion of the worksheet and one from the bottom portion of the worksheet.
  3. Have students make partners and janken to decide who goes first.
  4. The winning student asks their partner the top question, "Hello. This is (own name). Is this (    )?"
  5. If they guess correctly, they can advance from level 1 to level 2 and guess the second character that their partner selected. (After they have passed level one they don't have to say the Level 1 part again until the next round when they have selected new characters) If they guess correctly again on level 2, they receive a point and both students select 2 new characters and play again.
  6. If the student guesses incorrectly on Level 1, it becomes their partners turn to try guess their their characters and so on.
  7. If both students have reached Level 2, they simply keep on repeating the target grammar on Level 2 in order to find their partners selected character.



  • Instead of having students select new characters after their partner has discovered both of their characters and got a point, you can have them change partners.



  • Put a picture of yourself into the worksheet. There's a box just for you! Or, you can replace your space with another character.
  • Do a demonstration with your teaceher with A3 size paper in the front of the class.
