In modern Japanese, katakana is most often used for transcription of words from foreign languages or loanwords. I wanted to show my students that English uses a lot of loanwords as well.
This is a game of association, with 24 words & 6 languages/regroupment of languages. It's best to do it in a small group of 4 to 6 students, such as during English club. Sitting with them and slightly guiding them with questions (e.g.: Where do cheetahs live? Do they have snow in India? etc.) when needed makes it a good opportunity to work on their communication ability and teamwork.
All word cards have a picture of said words at the back. I also made a map of where these languages are official languages, to use as a clue. Getting this activity ready requires some preparation.
This can be a good ice breaker to lead to a research activity where they write their own list of loanwords.
