Charades is a mobile game that lends itself fantastically to the EFL classroom. It’s wonderfully communicative, fun and easy to play. You just have to divide the class into smaller groups.

As a player you simply select a category, hold your device up to your forehead so that your classmates can see the word or phrase but you can’t – and then they will try to get you to guess what the word or phrase is.

The game will work with a BYOD setup as well as in specific iPad classes. One working mobile/tablet per group should be enough.
