Students start at the left and make their way to the finish line by jumping from bubble to bubble while respecting the connecting lines. They must complete the phrase by using one of the words down below after the get, got or getting and then finish the phrase with their own ideas.

At the end of the game, count the points. The player with the most points wins.

Extra rules:

  • If playing with 4 or less people, words can only be used once.
  • Players are allowed to share the same bubble.
  • If playing with more than 4 people, each word can be used twice.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
