Yes and No Game

“Just Say No” is a great game for practicing speaking in the ESL classroom with young learners, teens and up. Great for practicing questions formation or just having fun. Especially great for Trinity exam practice etc
Activity Time: 10 mins +
Materials required: A chair
Skills practiced: Speaking, question formation
Level: Young learners, teens and adults.


  1. One student sits in a chair facing the class.
  2. The other students ask the student in the chair questions. The student in the chair must not say “no”.
  3. Get the students to ask “Do you like….” and “Have you ever…” questions.
  4. If the student says “No” then another student takes their place.
If your students find the game easy, make it more interesting by not letting them say “yes” or “no”.
