Guess my Sentence

ESL EFL Reading, Writing and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 25 Minutes

Here is a fun guessing game for students who are learning the third conditional. The class is divided into pairs (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding part of the worksheet. Both students have the same third conditional sentences, but where they have words in bold, their partner has gaps and vice versa. Student B starts by reading the first sentence and guessing the missing words in the gaps using the third conditional. Student B has three chances to guess the missing words. If Student B guesses the exact words that Student A has in bold on their worksheet, Student B scores three points and writes the missing words in the gap. If the guess is wrong, Student B tries again for two points and then for one point. Then, it's Student A's turn to guess the missing words in the second sentence and so on. This continues until all the sentences have been guessed. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Third Conditional Board Game

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

Here is an engaging board game to help students practice or review third conditional forms. In the activity, students play a board game where they complete third conditional sentences and ask and answer third conditional questions. Each group of three or four is given a copy of the game board, a dice and counters. Players take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When a player lands on a square, they use the clause in the square to make a third conditional sentence. If the sentence is grammatically correct and makes sense, the player stays on the square. If a player lands on an 'Ask a question' square, they must ask a third conditional question to another student. If a player cannot make a sentence or question or they complete a sentence or question incorrectly, they must go back to their previous square. The first player to reach the finish square wins the game.

Complete the Conditional

ESL EFL Reading, Writing and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 30 Minutes

In this productive worksheet activity, students practice the third conditional by completing sentences with missing verb phrases. The class is divided into pairs (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. The students read through the third conditional sentences on their worksheet and think about how they could complete the gaps with verb phrases. Student A starts by reading the first sentence to Student B, adding in their guess for the missing verb phrase. Student A has three chances to guess each missing verb phrase. If Student A guesses the exact words that Student B has in bold on their worksheet, Student A scores three points, writes the missing words in the gaps, and moves on to the next sentence. If their guess is wrong, Student A tries again for two points and then for one point. This continues until all the third conditional sentences have been guessed. It's then Student B's turn to guess the missing verb phrases in their sentences. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.

It's regrettable

ESL EFL Writing and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 35 Minutes

In this group speaking activity, students play a game where they try to identify problems from third conditional sentences expressing regret. The students are divided into groups of three and each group is given a set of cards. The students shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile on the desk. Each student takes a card and thinks about what caused the problem on their card. The students then plan how to express regrets about the situation using the third conditional, without saying what the problem is. When they are ready, the students take it in turns to talk about their regrets for the problem on their card. Student should express at least three regrets for each problem. The other students listen and try to identify the problem. The first student to guess correctly wins the card. If no one guesses correctly, the student expressing the regrets keeps the card. Afterwards, the students take a new card each and repeat the process. This continues until all the cards have been used. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Just Imagine

ESL EFL Writing and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 30 Minutes

In this entertaining speaking activity, students complete third conditional sentences about imaginary or unlikely situations in the past. The students then play a game where they race to find out who wrote each sentence by asking third conditional questions. Each group of three is given a set of cards, which they deal out evenly. Students then complete the third conditional sentences on their cards any way they like. The students now work together as a class. They fold up their completed sentences and put them in a box in the middle of the room. Each student takes a card from the box and goes around the class asking a third conditional question to find out who wrote the sentence on their card. When a student finds the person who wrote the sentence, they write the person’s name on the card, keep it, and take another card from the box. The students repeat the activity until there are no sentences left. The student with the most sentences at the end of the game wins. Afterwards, students report back to the class on what they found out during the activity.

My Mistake

ESL EFL Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 40 Minutes

In this group role-play activity, students practice accepting responsibility for mistakes using the third conditional. The class is split into groups of three or four and each group is given a set of eight strips containing third conditional clauses. The groups have fifteen minutes to prepare a short role-play about a mistake that someone had made. The situation for the role-play is left up to the students. The only rule is that the role-play must include the eight clauses on the strips. When everyone is ready, the groups present their role-plays to the class. While the groups are presenting, the other students listen and hold up a corresponding strip each time they hear one of the eight clauses. After each group’s role-play, the students in the audience make third conditional sentences about the group’s story, e.g. 'If Tom had woken up earlier, he wouldn't have missed his flight'.

Regrets

ESL EFL Reading, Writing and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 45 Minutes

In this engaging teaching activity, students use the third conditional to create short speeches by famous people or characters. Students then play a game where they guess who is giving each speech. The students are divided into teams of three or four. Each team prepares a number of short speeches that famous people or characters could have given regretting actions they had done in the past. When the teams have finished writing, they read out their speeches in turn to the class. After a team has read out a speech, the students discuss who it could be and each team writes down an answer. Each team then gives their answer and the famous person or character is revealed. Teams receive one point for each correct guess. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
