Mixed Conditionals SMS Game

An intuitive and fun mixed conditionals writing activity for your online classroom or as a printable. Students respond and guess the original message.

If you’ve ever used one of our SMS games before, you’ll know exactly how to use this one, too. For the initiates… Here’s how you can use this worksheet as a mixed conditionals writing activity for your intermediate (B1) or upper-intermediate (B2) students. You can use this in your online as well as offline classes. For online classes, you can display the PDF and share your screen or make it available to download for your students.

The idea is simple, and you can use this mixed conditionals activity as a class, in small groups or in pairs. One student is tasked to respond to one of the SMS messages on the worksheet by writing a response in the chat. Once submitted, the others must match the response to the original text message. The first to guess correctly earns a point along with the message writer (plus a bonus point if they used the third conditional in their response). The one who guessed correctly will now be the one to write a response to a different message in the chat… Play as many times as you want, even if messages are repeated!

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!
