Today we talked about national history. To present it as a game, we used online quizzes, which has the advantage of not requiring preparation time beforehand and is very easy to share on Zoom.
Here is the link for the Spanish Quiz : https://www.zoo.com/quiz/how-much-do-you-know-about-the-history-of-spain

We were pairing as teams and the goal was to get as many good answers as possible. It was great for all of us because one never knows too much about his own country’s history and it was an awesome way to make it discover to foreigners.
This was not a particularly funny meeting but very educative and productive. We learned that our countries share some common history and it served the purpose of this class to create international connections
I think it is a great exercise, easy to reproduce, if you are running short of ideas for your meeting !
