Let your students have zany conversations and debate over odd subjects with this interactive version of the popular Would You Rather game. It’s a playful way to improve their vocabulary and give free rein to their imagination.

Would you rather...

  • Wear the same ugly Halloween costume all year long except on Halloween or eat the same candies that you hate every single day of the year?
  • Stand up and sing to 30,000 people once a year on your birthday or never receive a gift again on your birthday?
  • Attend a music festival where you must spend the entire day eating extremely spicy food under the sunshine with no water or shade or spend the entire day in a movie theatre drinking cold water in air conditioning and have no toilet around?
  • Have to give a birthday present to every person you ever spoke to or be ignored by everyone during your birthday week?
  • Live in a world where Valentine’s Day is celebrated intensively every day or live in a world where holidays don’t exist?
