This talking chart goes nicely with the last post of travel destination cards. It will get students to talk about places in the world where they want to visit. It gets students to practice the question “Where do you want to visit?” though it could be easily modified to practice modals with the question “Where would you like to go?”
Check out these three different past tense activities to get your adult ESL students to practice and use the simple past tense. There’s a talking chart, a group writing activity, and a structured practice handout.
At my school, we recently started holding a conversation hour to give language learners listening/speaking practice. For the first week, our theme was holidays. For one part of the event, we did this activity designed to get people talking about their favorite holidays. It sparked a lot of discussion and gave people a chance to learn about holidays from different places.
A while back I posted a set of verb cards to use for a variety of different activities. This is a new set that I created that uses actual images instead of clipart. There is a total of 81 different commonly used verbs in English. You can use these cards for an endless number of activities in your class.
This is a great two-part activity that gives English learners a chance to practice question and statement forms in the simple past tense.
