T & T

"T & T" stands for Tsunami and Typhoon, and it is a great review activity for any level students. The rules are easy and the game is as fun as the teachers and students make it.

  • TAndT attachments: The attachment includes a gameboard and point cards. For the gameboard, after copying it, blow it up. For the point cards, make three copies of each of the numerical cards and five copies each of the typhoon and tsunami cards.
  • Create 25 or more questions.


  • Have the class get into their groups and decide the order to play. Each team gets 20 points to start.
  • Give each group a few minutes to think of a group's name. Write it on the board and use that to keep scores.
  • Every first person in the group will stand, ALT asks a question and counts to three, the students standing can raise their hand to answer the question. The JTE calls on the student who has his/her hand up first.
  • If a student answers the question correctly, s/he can choose a score card on the gameboard. If the answer is wrong, other teams get to answer the question. Whatever score card s/he chooses, the team gets those points. If s/he chooses a tsunami card, the team loses all their points. If s/he chooses a typhoon card, the team can steal all the points from another team.


  • Make sure to give slower students or groups time to absorb the question and think of an answer.
  • Throw in some trival questions (questions that don't require students to understand the English language to answer).
