Match Maker
Can a match made in heaven happen in an ESL class?

  • Each person in class will play matchmaker for an unattached friend or family member. 
  • Watch the video about adjectives of personality
  • Make a list of adjectives which describe your single friend. The adjectives should describe appearance and personality (both good and bad). Remember to list likes and dislikes for their friend. 
  • Next time, you will go around the room asking questions about your classmates’ single friends. The matchmaker’s goal is to find someone who is similar to his/her friend and who he /she thinks would be a good match. 
  • When you think you have found one tell the class why!
