Yes, No, Maybe is a simple speaking activity that is great fun for young learners and even teens.
Level: Young learners, teens A2 +
Materials needed: A set of vocabulary cards. These can be flashcards or you can create your own. A set of fruit flashcards are available below.
- To start, first print out and cut up a copy of the cards below. In this pre-prepared activity the topic is food but this can be changed to any theme students may be studying.
- When playing, a student first selects a card. The other students in class must ask questions about the card but the student who has the card can only respond with “Yes”, “No” or “Maybe”.
- You can award points for correct questions or for students guessing the correct answer.
You can set the number of questions or set a time limit that students have to decide what the fruit is.
Variation : Give students small pieces of paper and get them to draw their own words from a unit.
Tip : Keep printed cards and use them to revise vocabulary at the beginning or end of class and end of units.
