Call My Bluff

Literacy: Rw/L1.1, Rw/L1.3, Rw/L2.2, Rw/L2.3, SLd/L1.1, SLd/L2.1

Context: Art Film Media Music TV

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Game

A vocabulary building activity, involving dictionary use. Played in teams and based on the TV programme ‘Call My Bluff’. Teams compete to identify the true definition of a word when given a choice of three definitions, with one being true and two being false.

A great way to get learners to work together. I usually play this with level 1 and level 2 learners, either at the end of a session as an on going activity or as part of a session.

Words I have found beneficial are from L2 questions: narrative, evaluate, analytical, pessimistic and subjective.
