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

In this free future continuous vs. future perfect activity, students make predictions about their classmates. Students begin by putting verbs in brackets in the future continuous or future perfect tense, according to the time expression used in each sentence. Next, students write the name of a classmate at the beginning of each statement that they think the prediction will come true for, e.g. 'Craig will be living in a different place a year from now'. The students then go around the class asking and answering questions to find out if their sentences are true or are likely to become true, e.g. 'Craig, do you think you will be living in a different place a year from now?' The student who guesses the most correct sentences wins.
