alphabetEspecially for beginners – what I call “Body English” is a great technique. 

Start with letters / spelling and numbers.  

1. Bring a student to the front of the class.  

2. “Draw” a number or spell a simple word on their back or the palm of their hand. 

3.  Ask the student to guess the word or number.  

4. Get students in pairs doing the same.  


Students can also graduate and spell longer words, draw images for guessing etc…. 

You might also show them the “Human Alphabet”!
