Students get to know each other
How did you structure the class?
Activity 1 (15min): Students fill in three different pieces of papers: name, hometown and studies. All the pieces of paper are mixed and then students pick up three of them randomly. Students must find their original papers asking the others’ names, hometowns and studies and exchange the papers once the find them. Afterwards, each of them read in front of the class the written information.
Activity 2 (20min): Students are put in pairs. Each partner has to say three characteristics of their personality and a reason that support or prove this characteristic (E.g. “I’m adventurous because I love traveling”). After a while, they have to introduce their partner. Some characteristics are written in the whiteboard by the teacher in order to give some original ideas.
Activity 3 (15min): After a brief moment of thinking, students say three statements about themselves. One of them must be not true. The rest of the class has to guess which it is.
Activity 5 (10min): The teacher explains the rules and the conversation class agreement

What worked well in this class? What did not work? How could this class be improved/ modified?
It is a very good class for the first weeks. Fun and motivating and the ice-breakers work really well.
