Unfinished Sentences

Unfinished Sentences

Students work with a partner to finish sentences with their own information. Then, the two students have a conversation. This speaking activity works well as a warmer and encourages shy students to speak English.

Topic:  Warmer

Time:  20 minutes

Preparation

  • Make one copy of the handout for each student.
  • Timer

Procedure

1

Divide the class into two groups, Group A and Group B. Ask the two groups to line up next to each other, and sit down.  

2

Ask A's and B's who are sitting across from each other to pair up.

3

Give one copy of the handout to each student.

4

Ask A's to finish the sentence for #1, and have a discussion with their partner (from Group B) for one minute. 

5

Then, ask B's to finish the sentence for #2, and have a discussion with their partner (from Group A) for one minute.

6

Next, ask A's to stand up and move one seat down the line, so everyone has a new partner.

Continue the same pattern with #3 and #4.
