Futures- Card Game

A LESSON PLAN FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHERS

Different future tenses extended speaking game

Future tenses extended speaking card game

 

Photocopiable rules of the game

Take one card at random and talk about that topic as long as you can. Your partners will give you a score based on how long you spoke minus how long you paused:

30 seconds = one point

1 minute = two points

90 seconds = three points

2 minutes = four points

2 minutes 30 seconds = five points

3 minutes = six points

You can then take the number of cards of the number of points you got, e.g. three cards for three points. Play then passes to the next person. The next time your turn comes, you can choose any of the topics of the cards that you have in your hand (apart from the topics you have already talked about).

The person with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
