                                    Notes to teachers:

Cut out the cards. Get sts into trios (or groups of 4). Give each group a set of dominoes
(12 cards). Tell them to shuffle the cards and give out an equal number of cards to each
player. Sts in each group decide who will start playing. The first student starts by laying a
card on the table. The next student must place another card next to the first so as to
form a collocation by combining the right-hand adverb of one domino with the left-hand
verb/ adjective of the one next to it. The student must also use the collocation which has
been formed in a sentence. The group decides together if the collocation is appropriate
and if the sentence is right. If the student does not have a matching card, he/she says
‘Pass’. Monitor and check groups are matching the collocations appropriately. The
winner is the first player to get rid of all his/ her cards.
