1. Prepare a pile of smallish pictures depicting objects, animals, scenes. You can use simple drawings; but color photographs cut out of magazines are better.
2. Spread the pictures on a table in the middle of the class-room, and invite each student to choose one that arouses some kind of definite positive or negative reaction in him or her.
3. Then invite each to show his or her picture and say whether he or she likes it or not, and why. Start the ball rolling yourself: I like this picture of a dog - I love dogs, and this one reminds me of our own dog at home.

Whose is this?

1. The teacher asks up to 10 students to lend him something: a scarf, a pair of gloves, 2 books, a bag, pen, shoe, etc. He then chooses 1 or 2 objects and asks Whose is this? or Whose are these?
2. To control the answering, the teacher can point at or name the student he wants to answer the question, producing (depending on the situation): It's mine. They're mine. It's Anna's. They're hers. It's his. It's theirs.
3. After 1 or 2 questions a student can take over the teacher's role.

Find the pair

1. Prepare some two-line dialogues with each line on a separate card.
2. Distribute the cards.
3. First student reads the line on his card. If a student thinks that his line matches with the line of the first student he reads his card.
