BRIEF OUTLINE:  Charades Game in which students practice sentences "Want 人 to" and "Told 人to."   





  1. Cut out the charade action cards before class.
  2. Put students into groups of 3 people: Person A, Person B, Person C.
  3. Person A picks a charade card. A whispers to Person B, "I want you to (card instruction)." B does the action. Person C guesses the action by saying, "A told B to (what C understood from the gesture)." C should say the people's names, not A and B. If C is right, they recieve 1 point.
  4. Change roles. A becomes B, B becomes C, and C becomes A.
