Game: Have students a circle. Ask a question, and toss the ballto a student to answer. That student must then ask a question and ball onto another player.

Vary question complexity based on the ability levels of students. Play can be simple enough to use with absolute beginners ("What's your name?" "My name is _____") or challenging enough to engage lower intermediate learners, depending on the types of questions used. For competitive play, you may choose to eliminate players who respond incorrectly or who respond too slowly to a question.
