How to play
Place chairs in a circle back-to-back facing outward. There should be one less chair than the number of players. When the music starts all the players march in circle around the chairs. When the music stops players  find a chair and sit down as quickly as they can. The player left standing answers a question, while players sitting asks a question.
Play several rounds for mastery of the target language..

Have fun and enjoy Musical Chairs with your children!
