ESL Icebreaker Games For Adults

Learning English can be both exciting and daunting, especially for adults. Incorporating games into ESL classes can help break the initial barriers and create a positive learning environment. In this article, you’ll discover a range of effective ESL games tailored for adult groups.

Two Truths and a Lie

A classic ice-breaker, "Two Truths and a Lie" encourages participants to introduce themselves by sharing two true statements and one false statement about themselves. Others must guess which statement is the lie. This game not only helps participants learn more about each other but also gets them talking and practising English right from the start.

Human Bingo

Make bingo cards with different traits or experiences in each box (for example, spoken more than one language, been to another country). To fill in the boxes with names, participants should quiz each other. This game promotes interaction and aids students in discovering commonalities.

Speed Friending

Similar to speed dating, participants have a limited time (e.g., 2 minutes) to introduce themselves to a partner. When the time is up, they switch partners. This game encourages participants to share information about themselves concisely and confidently.

Story Starters

Participants form a circle and begin telling a story collectively. The first person starts with a sentence, and each subsequent person adds a sentence to continue the story. This game promotes creativity, cooperation, and builds conversational skills.

The Memory Map

Participants draw a simple map of their life, marking significant events or places. They then share their maps with a partner, describing each marker. This game allows participants to share personal experiences and practice both speaking and listening.
