BRIEF OUTLINE: Students practice expressions used during self-introduction.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • NiceToMeetYou handout: Five cards for each student. On the back of every card, stamp it with with various stamps. (explained below)

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After doing a self-introduction skit with JTE, check if the students understood it.
  2. After practicing the expressions a few times, distribute the name cards.
  3. Tell the students they will make five meishis (business cards). They can draw a face or anything they like in the boxes but they must write their names in English. Give them 3-4 minutes to do this.
  4. Then, demonstrate the activity with the JTE. First, introduce each other, and then janken. The winner receives a meishi from the loser. They say goodbye and find another partner.
  5. If they have lost all their cards, they must sit down.
  6. Stop the activity when the majority of the students have sat down.
  7. Tell them to look at the back of the cards that they have. Remember how I said to stamp the back of the cards? Now, assign points for every kind of stamp. For example: Stitch stamp = 3 points, Pooh stamp = 10 points, Mickey stamp = 0 point, etc.
  8. The student with the highest score wins.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • You can use music to indicate the students should start the activity. Then, stop it to indicate they must return to their seats.
  • Don't explain the significance of the stamps until the last part for an added element of surprise.
