Summary

The value of a rally, or scavenger hunt, in providing opportunities for second language learning is described. Teams are made up of people who do not speak the same native language. The players then begin the hunt that is designed as a noncompetitive creative language practice through participation exercise. Past experience indicates that the hunt provides an opportunity for everyone to use the second language for creative, practical ends while students develop personal associations outside their own language group. The materials for the game are detailed and some sample clues provided. Participants must supply the answers from their own knowledge or frame suitable questions to passers by. The rally or hunt offers a wide variety of possibilities for practical and creative language practice. The packet of problems used in a rally in Spain designed to teach Spanish is appended. (RW)
