Description
Is there intelligent alien life out there in space? If so, why haven't we found anything yet?

This worksheet looks at the 'Fermi Paradox' - the question of why there seems to be no life beyond this planet. Are we unique? Or is there some kind of Star Trek-like agreement not to contact us?

Whatever the reason, it makes a great topic for reading and discussion. Your students will learn expressions including:

  • a deafening silence
  • a near certainty
  • to draw a blank
  • to teem with life
and more.

With a lead-in, collocation exercises, gap-fill reading and discussion questions, there's lots for your students to sink their teeth into!

This worksheet is written for upper-intermediate and advanced level students.
