Aim To practise adjective plus preposition combinations.
Activity Students ask and answer questions to complete a “find someone who” questionnaire.
Organisation Individual and whole class
Preparation Make enough copies of the questionnaire for the number of students in your class.
What do I do?
  1. Hand out questionnaires.
  2. Students read through the questionnaire and think about the questions they need to ask.
  3. Students mingle, and complete the questionnaire by writing students’ names in the box if they answer “yes”.
  4. The objective is to find at least one “yes” for each question.

To develop fluency, encourage students to expand on their answers, rather than just answering “yes” or “no”.
