- Using have or have got in context: 

Have/Has poses a real problem for Japanese students since it doesn't match up well with any word or pattern in Japanese.  I created this set to help them practice have/has in some of its uses and hopefully internalize its meaning.  Hopefully, these will be helpful to your students as well.

Mark's note:  the cards on based on the idea that these people are twins and they have some slight differences.  'I teach he has a red shirt.' for younger students as 'has on a red shirt' can be added in later.

Another option is to use 'on' and accept language from the students without it.  They will eventually pick it up from you.
