Play I spy

I spy is a fun game for practising English vocabulary. Here are our top tips for playing I spy at home.
  • Play a game of I spy to encourage your child to speak English.
  • Choose an object that you can see, for example an apple.
  • Say 'I spy with my little eye something beginning with A'.
  • Your child then has to guess the word beginning with that letter.
  • This is a great game to play with the whole family!
  • You can play I spy at home, in the car, in the park - anywhere!
  • Kids can listen to a song about I spy on LearnEnglish Kids and play a game to practise the alphabet.
