Description
Students love to study idiomatic English, and this worksheet will teach five common expressions.

Taking numbers as the theme, there are gap fill sentences to have your students try to guess the meanings from the context. This is followed by exercises recycling the language to help your students consolidate the new expressions.

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

This worksheet is written for intermediate levels and above.

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!
