The thing I like about…

CardsI was inspired in coming up with this activity by a lesson in Face2Face Upper-Intermediate (p. 84) on introductory phrases that emphasize what we are going to say next.

After you have taught and practised the phrases (you will find them on the third page of the handout below), cut the squares from the first page (or the second if you print them in color), shuffle them and have the student pick one randomly and write or say something that incorporates the word on the card and one of the introductory phrases. Then you can actually turn this into a conversation by asking follow-up questions about the situation mentioned by the student.

Let me know how it goes.

Happy learning!: )
