Present Simple Matchmakers Game
Find out which of the things on the cards that you are given your partner would like most 
by asking about their routines and preferences (= what they do and what they like doing). 
Don’t tell your partner what the choices are. When you are sure about which one is best 
for them, explain which one you chose and why. They can then look at the choices and 
see whether they might have liked one of the other two better.
