This activity is based on The Calendar and Clock Game, Its purpose is to practice days of the week, months, hours on a clock and prepositions of time.
This activity includes a small selection of game cards focused on romantic times of the year (and a few heartbreaking ones).

Instructions

  1. For online classes, display the PDF on your screen and share it. For offline classes, print out a copy for each student or group.
  2. Then, choose a card. Students can take turns answering individual questions or you can discuss each card as a class.

There are 3 types of cards:

  • Opinion cards – students must answer the question by giving their opinion on the matter.
  • Puzzle cards – answer a small riddle connected to romantic times of the year.
  • Knowledge cards – Trivia! These questions are matched with sources (just click the *source link). You can even use the sources as authentic material to prolong the activity or turn it into a conversation course. Each source explains the reasoning behind the statistic.

Answers to the cards

  1. Opinion
  2. November (just before the holidays)
  3. They dated for 7 months
  4. Opinion
  5. October (not too hot, not too cold, pretty colors)
  6. 2017
  7. Opinion (birthday)
  8. Christmas Day, December 25
  9. A quarter past ten
  10. Opinion (April)
  11. August (end of summer)
  12. September (here, I’ve added “start seeing other people” and “split up” as alternatives to “break up”)

 


Did you ever google something slightly embarrassing related to a romantic relationship? Maybe you needed inspiration for one of those romantic times of the year we tend to find ourselves in all of a sudden. I can clearly remember googling things like “When should I break up with someone?” when I was 18. I remember the answer – the morning! I’d like to thank that anonymous internet user personally, because it actually turned out to be very practical advice!

There are other romantic timing questions, too, such as when is the best time of year to get married? engaged? divorced? Some of us have our opinions and experiences, while others cling to statistics. Whichever your choice, romantic times of the year are important for all of us.
