Download worksheet here: Find Someone Who – Xmas.

I designed this worksheet with my adult students in mind. However, I think it would definitely work with young adults as well and – why not make your life easier – even with fourth and fifth graders. It’s something that you can use in January (seems so far away but it will definitely sneak upon us) to get everyone to share stuff about their winter holiday.

Don’t forget to like and share!

Happy holidays!: ) 🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁🎁

Present Continuous Board Game

Present ContinuousHere are some Present Continuous Conversation Questions that you can use with your students. They’re in the form of a board game but I guess it can be adapted. I tried to include as many situations as possible that would prompt them to use the Present Continuous in their answers. If you choose to use this with groups of students, make sure they ask each other plenty of follow-up questions. Use the dice if you have groups of four playing or you can just put the question numbers 1 to 22 into a hat and have them draw the numbers one by one.

Let me know how it goes and if there’s anything I should improve.

Happy learning!: )

Conversation cards #3 – Present Simple

Conversation Cards Present SimpleSince I’ve taught the Present Simple recently, I made some conversation cards to help students use this tense with real-life situations and questions.

They can be used in one-to-one sessions or as pair work activity. Download here: Conversation Cards Present Simple.

And let me know how it goes; ).

Happy learning!

Do or Make?

Do or MakeHere’s  a handout that I made for my one-to-one sessions to review collocations with ‘do’ and ‘make’. You can download it in black&white or in color. Or both: ).

I’ve used it with pre-intermediate students and stronger elementary students. The first part is meant to test and drill the collocations (which you had previously taught) and then come some freer practice activities.

Happy teaching!: ) And let me know how it went.

‘Should’ – Giving advice

Should - Giving adviceThis is a speaking activity that you can use as freer practice in your one-to-one sessions or as pair work in the classroom if you want to revise or consolidate the use of ‘should’ for giving advice.

Each circle includes a number. Use dice to establish who’s going to read the situation or just choose a number between 1 and 15 and then read the corresponding situation. The other student in the pair will then offer some advice based on the situation. Students can also ask additional questions so they would find out more about the problem. This could develop really nicely into a longer conversation.

Noun plural handout

NounPluralHere’s something that you can use to brainstorm or review the plural forms of nouns.

The students think of nouns in the plural and write them in the corresponding circle based on how that noun forms the plural. They can start working individually, then compare their findings in pairs. During the class check stage, the students will also discuss the rules that applies to each category.
