ESL Indefinite Pronouns Activity - Vocabulary and Speaking: Gap-fill, Asking and Answering Questions from Prompts, Freer Practice - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

Here is a free indefinite pronouns speaking activity in which students ask and answer questions that contain indefinite pronouns. Working alone, students complete items on the worksheet with indefinite pronouns from a box. Next, students prepare the yes/no questions they need to ask for the activity, e.g. 'Did you lose something recently?' Students then go around the class asking the questions to one another. Students need to find someone who answers yes or no, depending on whether the item is positive or negative. When a student finds someone who answers appropriately to a question, they write down that person's name and ask a follow-up question, noting down the answer. When everyone has finished, students give feedback to the class on what they found out.

In this engaging indefinite pronouns running dictation activity, students race to dictate two stories and then use them to complete a reworded version of each story with indefinite pronouns. The student with the 'Story A' worksheet is the writer and their partner is the reader. The reader runs to Story A, reads the first part of the story, tries to remember as much as they can, runs back and dictates the text to their partner who writes it down. This continues until the story is complete. Students then swap roles for Story B and the process is repeated. Afterwards, students use the text their partner just dictated to them to complete a reworded version of the story with indefinite pronouns from a box. The first pair to complete both stories correctly wins.
