Comparatives – Pick Two Cards Game

Let’s practice comparatives with a speaking game.

There are lots of ways to use the cards as speaking prompts. Here is a simple game that can be played with two or more people:

1.) Flip one adjective card and one noun card.
2.) The first player makes a comparison with the noun category.
3.) The following players try to make further true statements.

An example with two players, where the adjective is ‘cold’ and the noun category is ‘places’:
Player 1- New York is colder than Mexico City.
Player 2 – True, but Moscow is colder than London.
Player 1 – Sure, but Yakutsk is colder that Moscow.

4.) When the players run out of ideas, they flip new cards and start again.
