Future Simple Speaking Activity

Grammar: Future
Skill: Speaking
Topic: General
Type: Zimasheet

Finally, a fun future simple speaking activity that everyone can enjoy while getting to know peers and hitting that target language.

You could have partners ask each other what their plans are for the weekend, sure… But how boring. Pairs make assumptions about their partners in this future simple speaking activity and earn points for correct assumptions.

To add more fun, make everyone correct the erroneous assumptions, adding repetition and general interest to the equation. We have limited the text to options that would be easy for A1’s to generate phrases with.

Display the PDF for everyone to see or pass out a copy to each pair or group. Give students some time to get acquainted with the images. Set a time limit for everyone to write down several assumptions about their partner using the text on the worksheet and inspiration from the images.

Once time is up, partners take turns sharing their assumptions with each other, marking a point for every correct assumption and correcting erroneous ones when possible. Because we are talking about the future, these assumptions may be either scheduled events or predictions – it’s up to the partner to decided if you score a point or not! Once finished, think about bringing the class back together so everyone can share one thing they learned about their partner.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
