ESL EFL Speaking Activity - Elementary - 20 Minutes

Here is a fun class activity to help students practice asking for, giving and refusing permission. The class is divided into two equal groups (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding Student A or Student B card. The students' task is to try to find their perfect partner. They do this by asking for and giving permission for the things on their card. If they find someone who asks for or gives permission for all four items on their card, they have found their perfect partner. All the students with a Student A card find a seat and sit down. Their job is to give and refuse permission. If a Student B asks for permission for an item on their card, they must give it. If a student asks for permission for something that is not on their card, they must refuse permission. The students with a Student B card circulate and ask the students sitting down for permission for what they have listed on their card. If they get permission for all four things listed on their card, they will have found their perfect partner and they sit down with the student. If they are refused permission for anything on their card, they must move on and speak to another Student A.

ESL EFL Drawing and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 30 Minutes

In this worksheet activity, students draw situations where people ask permission and their partner tries to guess the questions used to ask permission. The class is divided into two groups (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. The students draw pictures of situations where people ask permission in the corresponding numbered squares. For example, if the question was 'Can I borrow a pencil?' the student might draw a picture of someone with a piece of paper and nothing in their hand. When everyone has finished drawing their pictures, students cut the worksheet so the drawings and questions are separate. Students then pair up with someone from the other group. The students give their partner the drawings they have made. The students then take it in turns to guess what the person says to ask permission in each of their partner's pictures. Students get three chances to guess the question in each picture. If a student guesses straightaway, they get three points. If they guess on the second try, they get two points. If they guess on the third try, they get one point. The student with the most points at the end of the activity is the winner.
