Thanks for those tips....some of my students would manage the simple past questions but not all of them....I think I'll try the one where they have to fill in the gaps...just to see how they go with simple questions.
Any other ideas to get them speaking would be most welcome!!
I've put up nine squares on the white board and got them all just to write letters or numbers and then put them into the squares. Each student then has to ask a very "direct" question to find out about the student who put up the letters and numbers. That went quite well with me helping them
ask the questions.
I'll also try a naughts and crosses game to get them trying to use some
I'm quite pleased with their progress and would like for them now to write to a pen pal...as that could push them to work a bit more on verbs and grammar!!
Has anyone tried this idea and has it worked for your teens or not?
