  • ListeningRace worksheet: The first page of the attachment is the worksheet. The second page is a variety of verbs you can substitute into the worksheet.


  • After splitting the class into pairs, hand out a worksheet to each pair and have the entire class stand up.
  • The pairs listen to the teacher read a verb phrase and they must circle the correct picture on their worksheet. If the pair circles the wrong picture, they must sit down.
  • The last pair standing is the champion.


  • Use ONLY pictures for low-level classes. For more advanced classes, try using ONLY words without the pictures.
  • Instead of working in pairs, hand out a worksheet to each student and every student must fend for themselves.


  • For Special Needs classes, you might want to choose verbs with clear katakana parallels, like dance and run.
  • Take turns with the JTE reading the verb phrases.


  • Make sure the pairs don't try and cheat by looking at another pair's worksheet for the answer.
