Grammar Tenses Revision Activity (Intermediate and higher)

Hi there!

I’m here to introduce you an activity I’ve recently tried on my students. Due to the task you will be able to revise main tenses such as Present Simple, Continuous and Perfect, Past Simple, Continuous and Perfect, to be going to and Present Continuous with future meaning.

The task is created in the form of cards with different actions written in different tenses.

Here is the example:


Stage 1: Ask your students to work in pairs and put the cards in the groups in the right chronological order. Then check it as a whole class. Usually students come up with something like this:


You might need to revise the rules of using the tenses, it depends on how well they’ve accomplished Stage 1.

Stage 2: Students work in pairs creating a success story about any person’s career.

Stage 3: Students tell their stories to the whole class. Then they might choose the most interesting story.

Don’t forget to give feedback to their performance.

Hope it could help you somehow.
