ESL Manners and Etiquette Activity - Speaking: Sentence Completion, Guessing - Pair Work - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 30 minutes

In this free manners and etiquette speaking activity, students give opinions on appropriate behaviour in certain situations and then play a guessing game where they decide whether a partner would agree or disagree with their opinions. First, students complete each sentence with a verb from a box along with should, shouldn't or don't have to, according to their opinion. Working alone, students then guess whether a partner will agree or disagree with their opinions and indicate their answers in a chart. Next, students read their sentences to their partner who responds 'I agree' or 'I disagree' after each sentence. Students score one point for each correct guess. The student with the most correct guesses wins.
