vocabulary card’s game for unit 9 about jobs


Last Wednesday we played a game in class based on phrase-and-word cards about Jobs vocabulary to help us remembering the basic words about that subject. A deck of cards was given to each one of us. We played in pairs. One partner had to choose randomly a card and read aloud the phrase with a missing gap where the word-to-guess should go and thenthe other partner had to try to guess the word. If he/she did, then he/she kept the card. If he/she didn’t then the partner to read the phrase kept the card.

Here are the phrases and the words used in the game (one line per card):
