The Dating Game is a lot like the old TV show in America. If the kids are good, you can have one be the person looking for a date; otherwise, you will have to do it yourself. If you are really into it you can partition the kids off, but I don't know if you can trust them enough. Anyway, give the kids the top half of the sheet and have them fill it out so that they have their answers prepared for the first part. They can either use their real characteristics or just make something up. Give them numbers, and then start calling them and asking questions from the profile area. Ask more details for some of the questions, and try to find the answers that seem most compatible with your own. Also give them points based on how well they answer in English, and be sure to let them know that their grammar can be a big factor in whether they win or not. Run through all the profile area, switching up the order and so on to keep them on their toes. Then move onto the interview section, and make the students use the future tense to answer the questions. Again, give them points for answers that appeal to you as well as well constructed answers. Then when you get to the end, tally up the score and go on a date with one of your students! (not advised)
