Description
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.

This crossword has sixteen clues which are all connected to football / soccer or the World Cup. It's not too difficult, and is a great way to fill a spare twenty minutes at the end of a lesson.

The lesson rounds off with discussion, with your students having the opportunity to use the idioms in context.

Description
Are you looking to clear up some common errors made by elementary learners?

This worksheet is a fun way of helping your students understand some errors which they are likely to make.

The target language is generally found in an elementary textbook. The Present Perfect isn't included here; we have set things at a more basic level, with emphasis on present and past tenses, prepositions, adjectives and more.

You could cut the cards up or give the sheet out whole to pairs/small groups.

If you're looking for something on these lines for your advanced classes, search for our other 'grammar goofs' lesson, which has much more challenging sentences!
