A fun vocab review game

Write the vocab words on a flip chart of some sort.  I use an old notebook and write one word/page.  Divide the class up into teams.  I find that 5-8 people/team works well.  One student from the team comes and sits at the front of the class facing his or her teammates.  I show one word at a time to the team but not the person sitting at the front.  The team has to give hints about the word, in English only, using no body language.  An example: EYE.  Hints students give: 2, on face, I can see.

I do 2 or 3 rounds of 1 minute each and the goal is to get as many words as possible in that 1 minute.  If the team uses body language or Korean, I discount that point.  This game is very, very fun.  Lots of laughs and happy times.
