Tell Us About Game Board

Students use prompts on a board game to practice using the gerund and infinitive forms of verbs. Students discuss and play the board game in groups.

Level:  Intermediate

Topic:  Speaking

Grammar:  Gerund and infinitive

Time:  30 minutes


  • Make one copy of the Game Board for each group.



Students get into groups of 4 or 5 people.


Give a Game Board to each group. 


Ask students to get two coins for their group, and a space marker for each person.

How to use the coins:

Heads, heads = move 1

Tails, tails = move 2

Heads, tails = move 3


Students put their space markers on Start. The first student flips the two coins, moves the corresponding number of spaces on the game board, and follows the instructions.


  • Prompt = use the prompt to speak for thirty seconds. Pay attention to using the infinitive verb form and the ~ing verb form.

For example: Something you want to buy

want to buy a new handbag. My handbag is very old and dirty... (continue for 30 seconds)

  • Arrow = answer the question, then follow the arrow to jump ahead on the board.
  • Trade places = trade places (space markers) with another person on the board.
  • Go ahead = move the designated number of spaces forward on the board.
  • Go back = move the designated number of spaces backward on the board.

Students continue taking turns. The first student to reach Finish is the winner.
