I'm doing the Celta semi-intensive and I'm going to do a grammar lesson on the 1st conditional with a group of pre-intermediate students.
Can you suggest some written or freer speach activities that have a communicative purpose? That are not just gapfills or sentence constructions?
I've already figured out a controlled practice speaking activity, but my tutor suggested I give students one where they have more freedom (i.e. they are not following the rules I set in the exercise)
for freerer practice you may ask them to tell the partner the craziest of their dreams and a partner may act as as "concerned mother/father" for example: I want to give up my job and go to Paris - ok, but what will you do if you don't find a job? give them some time to prepare their "concerns".
