  • Who am I? What am I? People, places, things from around the world and throughout history.
  • Why use dictations? Students generally enjoy them, and they use a wide range of language skills in taking the dictation, checking their work, and then discussing the topic. Teachers find them easy–to–use,
  • Why use riddles? Because they are a fun challenge and call on the learners’ language skills and general knowledge. They can be used with groups large and small and with individuals, and there is always the fun of competition, either with oneself or with others. The subject matter of these riddles is varied and offers anyone the opportunity to learn about fascinating people, places, and things from all around the world in the present and past.

This photocopiable collection of dictation riddles is appropriate for a wide range of ages and levels of proficiency. It is divided into three levels—from high–beginning through advanced. Each level is further divided into three sections: people, places, and other. The vocabulary and grammar are progressively more advanced from Level 1 to Level 3.

Some key vocabulary is listed in a box before each riddle in the order in which it appears in the riddle. Within each level, you’ll find some riddles that are easier, some that are more challenging. Level 1 has fewer than 100 words per riddle; Level 2, fewer that 130; Level 3, fewer than 160. The most recognizable topics are in Level 1. The subjects that fewer students will recognize, or ones that most likely only an adult student or the more educated will be familiar with, are in Levels 2 and 3.
