Do You Know How To Play Bingo

Students will play bingo by interviewing their classmates, using "Do you know how to...?" and then will create sentences based on the signatures they received.

  • Review grammar.
  • After handing out the worksheet, review the vocabulary.
  • Release students to make pairs and ask their classmates questions from the bingo grid. If their partner responds, "Yes, I do," then they can receive a signature for that square. (OPTIONAL- If their partner responds, "No, I don't," then students have try again with someone new.) After both students in the pair have asked, students then move on to find new partners.
  • Once a student gets bingo by receiving signatures in four boxes vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, then have them practice writing sentences at the bottom of the page based on the signatures they received. (Ex. "Natsuki knows how to play the piano.")


  • If you want to extend the time of the activity, or let the students practice asking more questions, you can require them to get signatures for two-line bingo (seven questions, at minimum, versus four).
  • You can let students receive signatures for each question they ask (not just for the ones where their partner responds "yes, I do"), but have them indicate their partner's response, and then the writing portion can include sentences like "Eito doesn't know how to braid hair." This variation means that the students only have to ask four questions, so you might consider requiring them to get two lines.
  • Similar to the previous variation, you can have the students receive signatures for every question they ask, but they must fill out the whole grid, and can only get bingo if they have four "yes" or four "no" answers in a row.


  • You can require the students to ask the ALT or JTE at least one question (or offer stickers/extra points to the ones who do). Easy freebie to ask the teachers: "Do you know how to speak English?"
