Passive Descriptions

ESL EFL Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 25 Minutes

In this enjoyable card game, students describe objects using the present simple passive. The class is divided into groups of four. Each group is given a set of picture cards, which they shuffle and place face down in a pile on the desk. The students then take it in turns to pick up a picture card and describe the object on the card to the other students using the present simple passive. For example, if a student picked up a picture of a dictionary, the student might say: It's made from paper. It's used in the classroom. It's bought by someone learning a language. It's used to find the meanings of words, etc. The first student to guess the object wins the card. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.

What do they have in common?

ESL EFL Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 40 Minutes

In this challenging teaching activity, students play a game where they make sentences about what two things have in common using the present simple passive. The class is divided into teams of two and the teams are paired together. The competing teams are given a set of cards, which they shuffle and place face down on the table. Teams take it in turns to pick up a card from the pile and ask the opposing team what the two things on the card have in common, e.g. 'What do football and basketball have in common?' The opposing team then has two minutes to think of as many answers as they can using the present simple passive, e.g. 'Football and basketball are played in teams. A ball is used in both football and basketball', etc. For each grammatically correct and appropriate sentence, the team wins a point. Teams take turns proceeding in this way until all the cards have been used. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
