Associations Using the Subjunctive Mood

Level: Medium to Difficult

This game is very useful to teach the subjunctive mood.
All your students take part in this game. One of the students goes out of the room. All the rest think of one student (he or she should be present). The student who went out of the room comes in and asks "If this person were a vegetable (fruit, sweet, animal, car, nature, flower, city etc) what vegetable ( fruit, sweet, animal etc) would he be?"

One of the students answers in a full sentence: "If he were an animal he would be a dog" for instance

After some questions and answers the student who is asking the questions should guess who it is and the game begins again with another student going out of the room.
