Five-Minute Activities
A Resource Book of Short Activities


Penny Ur, Andrew Wright

English Type

International English







Date Published

February 1992

Product description

This book contains over 130 short activities for the language classroom: some are well-tried favourites clearly restated; others are new ideas or variations. The activities can be used to support learners with particular aspects of language, help students and teacher to get to know each other, provide a smooth transition between two major parts of a lesson, supplement a coursebook, and introduce or round off lessons. The activities are laid out simply in alphabetical order, with sections providing guidance on aims, preparation (if any), and procedure.

Key features

  • Most activities can be adapted to suit classes of different levels of ability.
  • Where relevant activities include suggestions for variations or extensions.
  • Almost all the activities can be student-led.
