Shot in the Dark

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

In this free future perfect and future continuous activity, students make predictions about their classmates. Each student is given a copy of the worksheet. Students begin by putting the verbs in brackets on the worksheet in the future perfect or future continuous tense, according to the time expression in each sentence. After the answers have been checked, 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. When the students have finished, they share what they found out with the class.
