Avengers mini-cards (speaking activity)

With Avengers: Endgame premiering this week, what better time to refresh your students’ knowledge about the Marvel cinematic universe?

Here’s a set of printable mini-cards especially designed in the Marvel colors to help your students engage on conversation on the topic of the Avengers movies and help them prepare for the latest one in this series. There is also a black&white version of the mini-cards included together with the suggested answers to the questions.

Have fun!

Conversation Mini-Cards – Scary version

Here’s a set of mini-cards you can use with students that have learned the Present Perfect Simple recently and need a bit of practice using it while talking about (scary) life experiences. I’ve focused on vocabulary related to mysteries and spooky experiences.

Scary Present Perfect Mini-Cards

There is a set of black&white mini-cards and a coloured set. It’s best if you print them on white card and then have the students cut them out.

Even if students answer ‘no’ to most questions on the card, they can be encouraged to further explore their answer:

‘Have you ever been to a psychic?’

‘No, I haven’t. But I think I would like to try it once. I would like to find out if… / what…’

‘Have you ever met a palm reader?’

‘No, I haven’t. And anyway I don’t believe in palm readers because…’

Hope you and your students will enjoy using these cards.

Work-related phrases and idioms – printable mini-cards

Here’s a handout that you can use to supplement work-related vocabulary in your lessons. It can be used with intermediate students, but I think it might work at the pre-intermediate level as well.

Basically, all you need to do is print this sheet on card, cut the mini-cards and use them to play vocabulary games.

Gap-fill – Chances – Backstreet Boys

ChancesDunno about you, but I’ve been listening to the new Backstreet Boys hit – Chances – on repeat these last few days. And this is how I realised this is a great song to help students notice third conditional past perfect forms! Amazing, I know: ).
I’ve made a gap-fill that you can use in class for a (fun) listening activity. Check it out!

Should / Shouldn’t (giving advice)

Here’s a prescription template that you can print and use in the classroom. If you’re teaching primary students, this might come in handy in a lesson on how to give advice using SHOULD and SHOULDN’T.

Pair up students and have them role play a doctor-patient dialogue using this prescription template to guide them.
