I finished my last class today. Ahead lies holiday, some training, some more holiday and a return to the UK! The last week or so of lessons have been more light-hearted than usual, and for some of my classes this has meant being introduced to Junior Cluedo, where the object is not to see "who the murderer is", but rather "who ate the chocolate cake"! The students have really enjoyed it, and at my insistence, used a lot of English for real purposes eg "It's my turn", "Please pass me the dice", "He's cheating". I've never seen kids playing board games in China, only cards and mahjong, so the techniques of taking turns, moving around a board and formulating a strategy are all fairly new to them. Most get the hang of it pretty quickly - some don't have a clue!
