Pep up your students' speech with this worksheet on emphasis!
Students need to be able to vary their language - and all too often it can sound flat, compared to a native speaker.
This worksheet looks at a number of techniques that can be employed to add emphasis, including:
* cleft sentences ('What you need to do is...')
* auxiliaries ('I do realise that...')
* fixed expressions ('What on earth...')
There is a gap-fill conversation, with lots of practice exercises.
The lesson rounds off with students creating mini-skits using the target language.
This worksheet is written for intermediate levels and above.
