Decision Dominoes

ESL EFL Reading and Matching Activity - Elementary - 20 Minutes

In this engaging group activity, students play a game of dominoes to practice ‘will’ for spontaneous decisions and offers. In the activity, students match statements and questions to spontaneous decisions and offers with ‘will’ and vice-versa. The students are divided into groups of three and each group is given a set of dominoes. The students shuffle the dominoes and deal out six each, leaving the rest in a pile, face down. The students then turn over the top card from the pile and place it face up on the table. The first player puts a domino down either before or after the domino on the table, making sure the statement or question matches with an appropriate decision or offer. Play then passes to the next student and so on. If a player cannot put down one of their dominoes, they take a domino from the top of the pile and put it down if they can. If there are no dominoes left in the pile, play passes to the next student. The first player to get rid of all their dominoes wins the game.

Decisions, Decisions

ESL EFL Reading and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this fun group activity, students play a game to see how quickly they can make decisions. In the activity, students practice making spontaneous decisions with ‘will’ and giving reasons for their decisions. The class is divided into groups of three or four. Each group is given a set of cards which they place in a pile face down on the desk. Students take it in turns to pick up a card and read the situation and question to the group. The first student to respond by making a decision with ‘will’ and giving a reason for their decision gets three points. The other students then have a chance to each get one point by making their own decision with ‘will’ and giving a reason. However, their responses must be different from the first student. If the first student doesn’t form their response correctly, another group member can challenge the student and be the first person to answer. The game continues until all the cards have been used. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner. When the students have finished, there is a class feedback session to find out which questions were the most difficult to answer and why.

Offers and Promises

ESL EFL Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this enjoyable worksheet activity, students respond to statements by making offers with 'will' and 'shall' and promises with 'will' and 'won't'. The class is divided into pairs (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. Student A starts by reading the first statement on their worksheet to Student B. Student B 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 isn't the same as what's written on Student A's worksheet, Student B must try again until they get it right. If it's the same, Student B writes the offer or request down on their worksheet. Student A then reads the next statement and so on until all the offers and requests have been made correctly. Afterwards, the students swap roles.

Offer it up

ESL EFL Reading, Writing and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 25 Minutes

In this worksheet activity, students guess missing words in sentences and questions that make offers with 'will' and 'shall'. The students are divided into pairs (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. The sentences with gaps on their worksheet are where the students have to guess the missing words and the sentences without gaps are the ones their partner has to guess. The missing words contain 'will' as a contraction or 'shall' plus a verb. Student A starts by guessing the missing words in the first sentence. Student B replies with 'Yes, that’s right' or 'Sorry, try again' as appropriate. When a student has guessed the missing words, they write them on their worksheet. Student B then guesses the missing words in the second sentence and so on. When the students have finished, they check their answers by comparing worksheets.

Promises and Offers

ESL EFL Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 20 Minutes

In this entertaining speaking activity, students practice making promises with ‘will’ and ‘won’t’ and offers with ‘will’ and ‘Shall I...?’ Each student is given a statement card. The students go around the class, reading their statements 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?' Students are also encouraged 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. Students can also do this activity in groups of three or four. Students take it in turns to read a statement to the group. The student who gives the best or most imaginative promise or offer keeps the card. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
