ESL Future Time Clauses Game - Grammar and Speaking: Battleships, Asking and Answering Questions from Prompts, Freer Practice - Pair Work - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

In this free future time clauses game, students play Battleships by asking and answering questions that use future time clauses. Students begin by marking four ships on their grid. Students then take it in turns to choose a square on their partner's grid. However, instead of giving a grid reference, the student makes a yes/no question using the corresponding household chore and future time clause, e.g. 'Will you wash the dishes when you have time?' Their partner listens to the question, looks at their grid and answers according to whether it is a hit or miss. If it's a hit, their partner replies positively, e.g. 'Yes, I will.' If it's a miss, they reply negatively, e.g. 'I'm sorry, I can't'. The student then marks the square with a 'H' for hit or 'X' for miss. The first student to sink all their partner's ships wins the game.

ESL Future Time Clauses Game - Grammar: Matching, Forming Sentences from Prompts - Group Work - Upper-intermediate (B2) - 25 minutes

In this engaging future time clauses game, students match future time clause idioms with their meanings and form sentences with the idioms. In groups, students take turns turning over one future time clause idiom card and one meaning card. If the future time clause idiom and meaning match, the student goes on to turn over an example sentence card. If a student turns over a three-card set that contains a future time clause idiom, its meaning, and a main clause that can be combined with the idiom to make an example sentence, the student reads out the example sentence combining the idiom, keeps the set and has another turn. If at any point a card doesn't match, the cards are turned back over, keeping them in the same place. Play continues until all 16 sets have been found. The student with the most sets of cards at the end of the game is the winner.
