ESL Game: Derp, Derp

Derp, Derp is a simple no-prep ESL game that can be used with any level or age group. To start, simply choose a student who will go first. This student must choose a word. This word is the secret word.

Next, the student must create a sentence using this word. They can say the sentence or write it on the board. For example, “The boy crossed the DERP, DERP.” The rest of the class must guess what the secret word is where the “DERP, DERP” is. If after 3 attempts no one guesses the word, the teacher can award a point and another student takes a turn. Students love this game as it can be silly but productive. Award extra points for correct sentences, new vocabulary studied in class or grammar structures used.
