Bingo ice-breaker

This is great if you have students with some language knowledge but who don't really know each other - or it can be used for students to get to know each other better.

Before the class, you'll need to prepare a bingo grid (size to suit how long you want the game to take - 5 squares by 5 is a good size.) In each square put a piece of information in the target language - some examples are below:

* has two younger siblings
* lives close to school
* likes playing basketball
* doesn't like watching football
* is wearing red shoes

Students need to ask each other in the target language to find someone who matches the description and ask them to sign the relevant square. The aim is to get a full straight line of signatures (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) - then call out "Bingo" (or an appropriate TL word).
