Board game “jeu de l’oie”

How did you pick this theme or topic?

I found this board game on the internet and I just thought that it would be a nice way for them to talk about themselves while playing and getting to know each other – also, they were only 5, so not too many, not too few.

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)

How did students react?
They reacted well, I think they liked talking about themselves and getting to know each other through a funny way.

Did they engage with each other and you?
They engaged with me and the others when replying to the questions asked by the board game and also when replying to questions asked by other class mates who wanted to know more about what they were discussing.

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
