    Frequent (verb) and Frequent (adjective)

    Hi,

    Does anyone have any good ideas as to how I could check the students' understanding of the differences between these two forms? I am struggling to think of any concept checking questions for this purpose..

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi!
    I'm not a teacher.
    (I hope I understood your problem correctly).
    If the students are not familiar with adjective/verb functions in a sentece, the whole thing may be difficult.
    First, I'd ask them to identify what part of speech the underlined words are:

    Foreign students often frequent Henry's bar.
    Foreign students are frequent visitors to Henry's bar.

    After they have fulfilled the task successfully, I would ask them to arrange the words in logical order and reconstruct the sentences, for instance

    at / run/ frequent / trains / intervals
    summer /frequented/ tourists / Hard Rock Cafe / last

    And finally I'd ask them to come up with their own example sentences.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to offer your suggestion - that's very useful, thanks. As a trainee teacher, these concept checking questions are quite tricky for me at times and it is a skill that I really need to develop.
