Driving and Listening in English

Do you ever drive while talking on the phone? In the UK it is both dangerous and illegal. To prove to people that they can't drive effectively and talk to someone on their mobile phone a short game has been created.

In today's activity you are going to play the Driving Challenge game and see if you can listen and complete the challenge.


  • The test is to count the number of different colour T-shirts you see, but I would like you to also listen and try to remember what questions the woman on the phone asks you while you are driving.

Good luck. I hope you enjoy this activity. Here you can find more Games to Improve Your English.

Hi Aiden

Brave of you to try it with a whole class. I guess that's has slowed the connection down a lot. How many computers are you using?
