Prompts for controlled practice (past continuous)
« on: November 14, 2018, 07:17:09 PM »
After eliciting, modelling, clarifying and drilling the structure of the part continuous questions and statements, the teacher sits the students in groups of 3/4 and gives each group a set of cards.

One student turns over a card and makes a question. All the other listen for grammatical accuracy, helping the student to correct her/himself if necessary and then answering. The student who originally asked the question responds to the answers and decides which answer she/he liked best and gives the card to that person.

Example:
Student A:    What were you doing 6 months ago?
Student B:    I was taking my entry 2 exam.
Student C:    I was looking for a job.
Student D:    I was looking for a husband.
Student A:    A husband? Oh! Did you find one?
