Janken 4's

日本語の説めビデオである


(This activity is a grouping variation of Janken Conversation Rounds.)
This warm-up activity that is useful for:

  • reviewing language patterns from the last lesson;
  • recycling vocabulary and language from earlier lessons; and
  • teaching Conversation Skills.
It allows students to practice a conversation more than once, yet saves time since students don’t need to move from their desk area.
On the blackboard, write a conversation pattern, for example:



W)Do you like fish?
L)Yes, I do./No, I don’t.
+Repeat the Same Question (Do you like fish?)
W)Yes, I do./No, I don’t.

Ask students to think of an original question by replacing the parts you’ve chosen (written above in italics. On the blackboard, I always use yellow for the parts students will change.).
To Play: Students stand at their seats, and first play Janken with the seat partner next to them. When these two have finished the conversation, next the 2 students in front and back of each other (as though the students are in groups of 4) play Janken and do the conversation. Last, the two students diagonally opposed to each other play Janken and do the conversation. When these 3 pairs have finished, they sit down in their seats. Time: less than 5 minutes.
