ESL Future Continuous Worksheet - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

This free future continuous worksheet helps students to learn and practice how to form and use the future continuous tense. Give each student a copy of the two-page worksheet. Students begin by looking at two future continuous sentences and answering questions about their grammar. The students then do a gap-fill exercise where they complete a text with words that make up the future continuous structure. Next, the students complete each sentence with the verb in brackets in the future continuous tense using the positive or negative form as appropriate. After that, the students complete sentences with verbs from a box in the future continuous. Lastly, the students use the future continuous to complete sentences with true information about what they will be doing at the times shown. Then, they pair up with another student and write sentences, guessing what they think their partner will be doing at the same times. The students then ask their partner what they will be doing at those times. For each correct guess, students score a point. The student with the most points wins.

ESL Future Continuous Game - Reading, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate (A2-B1) - 25 minutes

In this future continuous activity, students play a game where they listen to clues and guess what their partner will be doing at various times using the future continuous tense. Divide the students into groups of four and then into two teams within the group. Give the two teams one set of cards which they shuffle and place face down in a pile on the table. The students take it in turns to pick up a card from the pile, without showing it to anyone. The student then reads the two clues written on the card to their partner using the future continuous. The two clues explain what the student will be doing at a certain time, e.g. 'At 6:00, I will be hitting a ball with a club. I will be walking around a course'. Their partner then has 30 seconds to guess what they will be doing at that time, whilst the other team times them. If the student manages to guess correctly and say the sentence written at the bottom of the card, the team wins and keeps the card, e.g. 'At 6:00, you'll be playing golf'. If not, the other team can guess and keep the card if they are successful. If neither team manages to guess correctly, the card is removed from the game. It's then the other team's turn to play. The game continues until all the cards have been used. The team with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
