Roll the dice on this ESL / EFL discussion activity and let the chips fall where they may. Your students will listen to the American singer Kenny Rogers perform his hit “The Gambler” and then learn some useful idioms stemming from the world gambling. Top that off with a little paired discussion at the end and you’ve got yourself a good ol’ fashioned ESL / EFL conversation class.

Wanna go for broke? Throw in some gambling of your own! Practice rule comprehension by having your students play one of these dice games. They can read the rules, try to understand and amongst themselves. Try these virtual dice, or better yet, use your own.

It’s so simple to use, I don’t think I even need to write down the instructions here. Have fun! And may the odds be ever in your favor…

Ah yes, and the piece de resistance:

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.
