The first activity called The Chinese Portrait was meant to encourage students to describe themselves through a different perspective. They were asked to complete several hypothetical sentences about themselves - the way they perceive themselves in special circumstances (if they were an object, a tree, a bird, a fruit, a celebrity, etc, which one they would choose and why). They were also expected to motivate their choice. Some of the students presented their answers in front of their colleagues.
The aims of this activity were to encourage students to think about hypothetical situations, to develop both their language and communication skills.
The second activity was called Word Game. Working in mixed groups, students chose a leader for each group. The leader had to think about a word without saying it to the group. In turns, the members of the group were asked to say a letter of the alphabet. If that letter was part of that word, they would write the letter on the right side of a paper. If the letter didn't belong to that word, they had to write it on the left side of the paper. A clue would be the morphological category of that particular word. The first person to guess the word would be the next leader and would get a prize.
The aims of the activity were to encouge students to cooperate, think, enrich their vocabulary (where necessary), develop their communication and language skills.
