ABC Word Chain | The Best EFL Ice Breaker Games

ABC Word Chain | The Best EFL Ice Breaker Games

This activity is ideal for building vocabulary and can be played with all levels of students. The teacher chooses a topic and asks a student for a word that fits into that topic.

For example, the topic could be “animals” and a student says “lion”. Next, the students take turns building a word chain by looking at the final letter of the last word in the row, here “lion”, the letter “n”, and choosing a word that begins with this letter and also fits into the given category. So, in the case of our animal word chain, it could be “lion”, “newt”, “turtle”, “elephant”, and so on.

Play this for a couple of minutes at the beginning of your lesson to give each student a chance to think and speak in English.
