Description
Get your students speculating with this conversation-based worksheet.

By the end of this lesson, your students will be able to use must / can't / might to express certainty.

e.g. He must be stuck in traffic. / He can't have forgotten etc.

It's a really important use of these modal verbs - and it takes students time to learn to use them fluently.

This worksheet has a conversation based around some friends waiting for someone in a restaurant.

There are lots of follow-up exercises to help your students with the target language. The worksheet rounds off with a role-play.
