Sometimes I adapt activities from TV shows, games, etc.

The following activity is from a drama group called ‘Mahser-i Cumbus’. While watching their performance, I usually find great ideas for my classes.

It sounds a bit confusing but it really is fun.

Student A stands up and mimes. While miming she makes a sentence with another action.

Student B comes and mimes the action student A has just said but says something else.

The situation should look and sound something like this:

A: (brushing his teeth) I’m drinking a cup of coffee

B: (drinking a cup of coffee) I’m washing my hands.

C: (washing his hands) I’m writing a letter.
