Vocabulary revision game


Students play various games to revise Christian vocabulary items.

- Levels: pre-intermediate to proficient (A2-C2)
- Time: up to you :-)


Over 250 word cards and 10 games to play with them!

Make vocabulary revision fun for your class: in the first game, one student explains a word to the rest of their team, but he or she can neither say the word in question nor any of the other words on the card... and the clock's running!

For example, the student needs to explain the word 'pray', but without saying the forbidden words 'talk', 'God', 'ask', 'worship' and 'Our Father'. Cards for pre-intermediate students contain three forbidden words, while cards for intermediate to proficient students contain five.

Before the game, the rules are explained clearly and students match rules and examples on a worksheet.

This pack contains 45 word cards for pre-intermediate level, 99 cards for intermediate / upper-intermediate level, 108 cards for advanced / proficient level plus a template for making your own.

And the fun doesn't stop there! The teachers notes explain nine more vocabulary games that you can play with these cards. May the best team win!


'English for Christians' prepares language learners to interact successfully in a Christian English-speaking environment. This series of supplementary materials can be used alongside any course book. It covers a range of Christian topics, skills and language levels and is suitable for Christians of all denominations.

All materials are photocopiable and ready for classroom use. They include:

- the students' edition (handouts in original A4 page size)
- interleaved teacher's notes (scaled-down student pages and teaching instructions side by side on a landscape-orientation A4 page)

The materials are aimed at students who:

- work or plan to work abroad as a missionary or in a Christian environment
- study theology in English or study English while attending a theology college
- attend international church services, Bible studies, Christian conferences, work camps or holidays
- prefer Christian to secular teaching content

Whereas most Christian EFL* materials seek to convert learners to the Christian faith, this series is designed for students who are already Christians, and does not follow an evangelistic approach.

* EFL (English as a Foreign Language) = ESL (English as a Second Language) = ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) = ELT (English Language Teaching) = TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) = TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) = TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)
These terms tend to be used interchangeably.

With 12 years’ experience as a language teacher, I’m now a part-time writer of English teaching materials. I hold the Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) and have completed International Training Network’s course “The Christian teacher”. With my diverse church background, I’ve experienced a range of different denominations, countries and nationalities. This has shown me that there are specific skills and vocabulary items that Christians need in an English-speaking context. So I’ve set out to create varied, communicative learning materials, which I hope you will find both useful and enjoyable!
