AIM: To practise “What is your name?”, “My name is…”, “How do you spell that?”
INSTRUCTIONS: This is a good activity for students who do not know each other in the first class. Write the following model on the board: “What is your name?”, “My name is…”, “How do you spell that?” Ask the students to sit in a circle. Sit with them in the circle and ask the student on your left “What is your name?” He/She should reply “My name is (their name)”. Then ask “How do you spell that?”. The student should spell his/her name. While he/she is spelling it, ask the other students to write the name on a piece of paper. The activity continues around the circle until everyone has had a chance to practise the questions and answers. At the end, ask the students the names of all the people in the class.
