The Intellectual Auction is a game played by two teams. Each team has $1000 to buy the questions by offering the highest price like in an auction after the teacher says the starting price. If the team buys the right statement , it gets 1 point. If the team buys the wrong statement, it gets 2 points. Moreover, 1 more point is given, if the team can correct it. These are the topics the students should study long before the game (as their homework): the capitals and large cities, flags, official languages, political parties, food traditions of the English speaking countries; New York’s history; Australias’s animals; football ; projects on reforming English . 2.The Australian flag has six stars. 4.The British like spicy food.
