Longer advice phrases card games
Teacher’s instructions
Cut up one pack of cards per group of three or four students, dividing off the bold words in  
the middle. Students try to match the beginnings and ends of the phrases, then try to add  
the middle words to extend and double check their answers. 

Give out un-cut-up copies for students to check their answers with, then they can test 
each other in pairs but saying parts of the sentences and eliciting the missing parts. 

Students can then play a communication game, dealing out the cards and using as many 
of them as they can as they ask for and give advice.
