3 truths and a lie

This activity can be a neat way to practice pretty much any grammar point. Essentially a more interesting way of creating example sentences, it is also useful for practicing intonation as well as a conversation starter for the most effective ways to lie.

As the name suggests, each student has to create 4 sentences of which one is a lie. The objective is to guess which sentence is not true.

Time: 5-10 minutes
Preparation: Zero!
Level : Elementary – Advanced
Happy students: **
Procedure:

  1. Ask students to write 3 true sentences and 1 false
  2. Each student says their sentences. After each one, ask the other students whether they think it’s true or not
  3. Give each correct student a point
  4. The student with the most points at the end is the winner
