The ambassador

incl. materials
30 min.


The learner can consolidate learned vocabulary.


  • Pens and paper
  • Blackboard


Repeat the vocabulary of a treated topic: What words do you remember and can you explain them?
It stimulates the consolidation of the words and learners who were absent, will be able to participate in the exercise.


  • Divide the group into teams of 3 or 4 people.
  • Of each team you call one member, the ‘ambassador’ to you and you give these learners a word referring to the treated topic.
  • The ambassadors go back to their teams and draw the word.
  • The learner who guesses the word, gets a point.
  • Each team sends a new ambassador for a new word, and so on.

Closing up

Compare the drawings of the teams: what are the recurring elements?

Tips for the instructor

  • Beginners: Let the learners make sentence with the words.
  • Advanced: Let the learners make a story with the words.
