A lot of fun moments occurred in our classroom, especially in the last session of IELTS the class, Speaking Class, when we played a game named sherd or shed or sherk – I’m totally in lost when recalling the name of the game. The rule of the game described as one person gave a word card then explained the definition of the word using their own sentences without using the same part of word or gesture. The other classmates should guess the word based on the definition given. The hardest part of it that when it comes to explaining an uncommon word such as goldsmith and gorgeous.
Pak Fachri, Bengkulu University, got the word of ‘goldsmith’. At first, he did not understand the meaning, so the tutor made an explanation about the word. Pak Fachry then explained the word with these sentences:
A person who is working in a mine, xxxxxx (I forgot), in a gold mine…
Teeet! The tutor suddenly stopped the speak because of a mistake he made that is using some part of the guessed word. The tutor then made her own definition, but, in the end, nobody could guessed the word.
Goldsmith: noun, a person who makes or sells articles of gold. — dictionary.com
