New Headway Pre-Intermediate Unit 13
Say something true about your past, present or future weekends but with the grammar taken out, e.g. “play football”. Your partner has to guess if it is true in your past, present or future, and then try to make a true sentence, e.g. “You used to play football with your friends when you were a child”
Recently changed jobs game
The people below have recently changed their jobs and so their routines have changed. Explain one thing they did before and something different they have been doing recently (e.g. “He used to wear a uniform but recently he’s been wearing ripped jeans and a dirty T shirt”) and see if your partner can guess who you are talking about.
