Ever heard of Googlefight? It’s a lot of fun. You enter two words or sentences and see which one has the most results on Google.

It’s a good ice breaker for a new class or just a fun game for tired students.

Here are some ways you could use it in class:

You can take two words with a similar meaning and ask your learners to guess which one is more popular then check using Googlefight.

If your learners are not sure how to spell a word get your learners to write it in Googlefight and discover the answer.

Compare spellings in American English and British English

Googlefight is a great way to use the internet and an innovative way to learn more about vocabulary. You can also read about fight in the class room with Jamie Keddie`s novel approach.
