ESL Offers and Promises Activity - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking - Elementary (A1-A2) - 25 minutes

Here is an engaging making promises and offers activity to use in class. In the activity, students respond to statements by making offers with will and shall and promises with will and won't. One student starts by reading the first statement on their worksheet to their partner who looks at the words in the box on their worksheet and replies by making an offer or promise with 'I’ll...', 'I won’t...' or 'Shall I...?' If the offer or request is the same as what's written on the student's worksheet, their partner writes the offer or request down. If not, their partner makes another offer or promise. The student then reads the next statement and so on until all the offers and requests have been made correctly. Afterwards, the students swap roles.

In this free making offers game, students guess missing words in sentences and questions that make offers with 'will' and 'shall'.

The missing words in each offer are 'will' or 'shall' and a verb. Students get three chances to guess the missing words and must say the exact sentence their partner has on their worksheet to win. If a student guesses correctly the first time, they score three points. On the second try, they score two points and so on. When a student correctly guesses the missing words, they write them on their worksheet. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

Promises and Offers

ESL Promises and Offers Activity - Reading, Listening and Speaking - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 20 minutes

In this amusing promises and offers activity, students practice responding to statements by making promises with 'will' and 'won't' and offers with 'will' and 'Shall I...?' Students go around the class, reading statements on cards to each other, e.g. 'I need to go to the airport'. When a student listens to a statement, they respond with a promise to do something or with an offer of help, e.g. 'Shall I call you a taxi?' If possible, students try to give funny or imaginative responses, e.g. 'I'll get your chauffeur'. When two students have practiced making an offer or promise to each other, they change partners. When everyone has finished, students tell the class about any funny or creative responses they had to their statements. As a variation or extension, in groups, students take it in turns to read a statement to the group. The student who gives the best or most imaginative promise or offer wins and keeps the card. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
