I'm a student trying to get a degree in TESOL.† This is my Practicum semester and this week I've been given the task of teaching slang.

I need some activities, interactive ones, for the class that will get students using the new slang I've given them.

If you have any ideas for activities pleeeeease help me?† I'd be willing to send you what I have already.

My days are:
1) Slang overview
2) Academic Slang (have the slang- but need activities for usage)
3) Romantic Slang (good here)
4) Break up Slang (would be interested in slang... and some activities)

Any help you can give would be really appreciated.

It depends a little on your student's age.
For younger students you could play a game.

Have them stage a situation. Whenever slang is used the responding player will pull a card, either "slang" or "literally".

A: I can't stand you any longer. Go and hit the road.
B: pulls card and gets literally. He will have to hit a road.
†† †Pulls card and gets Slang. He will give an†appropriate response.†
