Guess Who Game Show ICP
The aim of the KICP is to encourage the students to speak with foreigners in English and develop an interest in people from other countries. The game show format makes it fun and exciting and helps break down some of the nerves the students may have about speaking with strangers.
It takes roughly 6 lessons and works best at the end of the first grade when the students have developed their speaking skills through the hamburger shop/asking directions/answering the telephone modules.
Each class is divided into teams of four and allocated an ALT as their ALT. They write letters to the ALT to gather information about the ALT (where they are from, what they like etc). From the responses, they form quiz questions about the ALT for the KICP. The KICP is run like a game show. The ALTs are numbered and hidden behind a panel. The teams take turns choosing a number and asking the ALT one of their quiz questions. From the answers they have to guess which ALT is their ALT. Rounds of questions continue until all teams have submitted a guess. Then the ALTs are revealed. The winning team was the first to guess correctly. The ALTs then have chat time with their team, followed by free chat time with the whole class.
