Healthy or Unhealthy Adverbs

A fun game to practice and master adverbs of quantity and frequency with your ESL students while reviewing health and fitness vocabulary.

Are these habits healthy or unhealthy? Students use their handy dandy adverbs to decide.

How to use this activity

This one is very easy to explain! It works your students’ usage of adverbs of quantity (page 1) and frequency (page 2). The PDF consists of 2 pages so you can focus on one series of adverbs at a time.

Choose the number of a card, set a time limit for your students, and let them come up with a response. One point is awarded to each grammatically correct sentence. (You can award an additional point for fun and original sentences).


For example:

Page 1, card 1 – Tony has taken 37 sick days this year.

“This is a lot of sick days! He is probably not very healthy.” (1 point is awarded)

Page 2, card 1 – Tony has taken 37 sick days this year.

Sometimes people get sick! It happens. Maybe he feels better now and he has recovered from his illness.” (1 point is awarded)
