For this variation on "liar" games you need to get a list of
gestures & customs for a number of countries from around the world.
( Search Google)
You could do this as a multiple choice game or a true-false game.
Also you will need LIAR cards, 3 per person. (This is worth
the effort for one of the best speaking games on the planet.
and if you've ever done a LIAR game this is possibly THE BEST
The game goes like this:
The teacher writes a model on the board
A)DON"T PUT YOUR HANDS ON YOUR LAP UNDER THE
TABLE IN A RESTAURANT
B)WEARING GREEN SHIRTS ON SUNDAY IS IMPOLITE.
C) TO CALL A WAITER IN A RESTAURANT YOU SHOULD
RAISE YOUR INDEX FINGER.
Tell the students to choose which one is a lie (obviously
B is a lie).
Next the students write their own two truths and one lie using the
slips of paper containing customs from "The web of culture"
as their resource/reference.
Finally, give out three liar cards per person. Then model
the game again having a student read their 3 sentences.
You the teacher listen and hold out your LIAR card saying
"I think B is a lie" If you are correct give the student the LIAR
card. If you are incorrect no change takes place.
The aim of the game is to have no LIAR cards.
