Travel and Tourism Recommendations- Numbers Practice
Look at the page below that your teacher tells you to. Ask for a recommendation related to
one of the lines on the worksheet and listen to your partner’s/ partners’ recommendation(s)
for travellers. Ask for more details, give feedback and/ or share your own ideas, and
respond positively or politely respond negatively to their suggestions. Then switch roles
and do the same with your partner’s choice of a line from below. Continue taking turns
asking for, giving and responding to recommendations until your teacher stops you.

Suggested follow-up questions
How big
How can I get to
How cold
How far
How heavy
How high…?
How hot
How humid
How long
How many
How many percent
How much
How much does… weigh?
How often
How strong
How tall…?
How wide
What percentage
What temperature
What time
When
Where
Which month
Which season

Ask about any situations, numbers, etc below that you don’t understand or can’t imagine a
recommendation for, discussing your recommendations each time.

Look at the figures version of the worksheet. Read out one line, including the number if
wrongly or if they can think of another way of saying the same thing. For the lines which
have no figures, think of example numbers after reading out the line, e.g.
“one dollar
twenty (cents)” for “cheap breakfast”.
