Natural English Intermediate Unit 1 and 2

 

Cut out the cards below and deal them out to the students. Students must pretend that they are meeting people for the first time, start a conversation and try to naturally slip the sentence or sentences they have been given into the conversation without their partner spotting which sentence they are trying to say. After 3 to 5 minutes of conversation, give points for spotting which sentence your partner was trying to say and for slipping yours into conversation without your partner spotting it.
