Aim To practise asking and answering questions.
Activity Students ask and answer questions.
Organisation Groups or whole class
Preparation Make enough copies of the worksheet for the number of students in your class.
What do I do?
  1. Sit students in a circle. If you have a large class, divide students into two groups.
  2. Give each student a question card. Students write a question on the card that they would like to ask the student to their right. If you want to practise a particular tense, restrict questions to this tense.
  3. Student A asks his/her question to Student B, sitting on his/her right. Student B answers and the rest of the group decide whether the question and answer were formed correctly.
  4. Student B asks his/her question to Student C, and so on around the circle until the activity has returned to Student A.
