ESL Adverb Order Activity - Reading and Error Correction - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 30 minutes

In this adverb order activity, students find and correct mistakes in the placement of adverbs in sentences. Working alone, the students read the sentences on the worksheet, some of which contain errors in adverb order. If a student thinks the adverb order in a sentence is correct, they put a tick in the 'right' column on the worksheet. If a student thinks the placement is incorrect, they correct the mistake and put a cross in the 'wrong' column. The students then bet on their answers, depending on how confident they are about each decision. Students bet between 10 and 100 points for each sentence and write their bet in the 'bet' column. Afterwards, go through the sentences as a class and elicit the correct answers from the students. If a student guessed correctly, they transfer the amount written in the 'bet' column to the 'win' column. If they guessed incorrectly, they transfer the amount to the 'lose' column. When all the answers have been checked, the students add up the total amount won and lost. The students then subtract the amount lost from the amount won to give a grand total. The student with the most points wins.
