Lesson Plan Text

Reported Questions Games

1. Reporting personal questions

Work in twos or threes. Take turns asking each other questions until one of you repeats 
the same question or gives up.

Take turns trying to remember questions that your partner asked you. Continue until one of
you gives up. 

Useful language for playing the game

“You asked me when/ where/ what/ which/ how/ how often/ how long/ how far/ when…”
“You asked me if/ whether…”
“Yes, that’s right”
“I’m not sure. Maybe.”/ “I can’t remember. That might be right.”
“Actually, I asked you…”

2. Reported questions bluffing game

Choose one of the people below. Decide if you can really remember some questions that 
they should ask you or if you will make up something. Take something small like a pen cap
and hide it in your right hand if you will say something true or in your left hand if you will 
use your imagination. Report the question to your partner. Perhaps after asking questions 
like 
“What did you say?”“How did you reply?” your partner will guess if your answer was 
true or false. Show them the pen in one of your hands so they can see if they guessed 
correctly or not.
