PICTIONARY - a popular game to practise your English

Hi, Guys!,


Have you ever played PICTIONARY? It's really fun if you play with your friends, but if you play it making up your own cards with English words, it can be challenging!!! Do you agree with me?


Pictionary Cards 
Once again, you'll need some pieces of cardboard, you can select different colours according to different semantic fields. Now, let me give you an useful link full of basic vocabulary:http://www.languageguide.org/english/ . Take a look and start writing your own Pictionary cards!

Everybody can create their own cards and play together, they are going to learn, amplify English vocabulary, ... but above all, they'll have fun!!! ;)

1, 2, 3, ... GO!!! Just pick up one card and draw the word given, your friends or classmates have to guess this!

I WISH / If ONLY (2)

Hi, Guys!,

Let's study "I WISH and IF ONLY"!


We use I Wish / If Only + Past Simple to express a wish ofr Present and Future.
I wish you were here

We use I Wish / If Only + Past Perfect to express a Regret, the action is past.
If only we had invited him, now he's really angry.

We use I Wish / If Only + Would + Infinitive to express a Complaint.
I wish she wouldn't copy me, (because you're fed up with this).

TaBoo - a popular game to learn and practise your English


Hi, there!,

Taboo Cards
I think you all know how to play TABOO, it's really amusing when you play with all your friends and family. Why don't you play it at school?

1. As always, you'll need to pick up some pieces of cardboard and cut them into pieces. Then, the teacher can select some common words to help students to speak up and participate. The students and teacher will write down one word in every card. Other day, he / she could bring other difficult words to define.

2. One student picks up one card and has to define the word given without saying it. The first one who guesses the word gets some points. Now it's his / her turn.


3. If your students are older (secondary or uppersecondary level), you, as a teacher, can write one large font word included in a circle and other words crossed out. Now, the student has to define the word given without saying all the words appeared on the card. (see the example in the photo).

4. I hope you'll enjoy this game,

LEARNING ENGLISH IS ALWAYS FUN ;)

Hi, Guys!,

Would you like to check your knowledge or just review your English?
Well, I recommend you to link the following webpage http://www.xtec.es/~ogodoy/sac/rephrasing/rephrexercises.htm, it's fantastic!!!, it's a set of computer- assisted activities for Intermediate learners. So, you have to read the sentence and identify the grammar point in the sentence, then you have to rewrite the sentence without altering the original meaning, and finally, check yourself for grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes.
