Lesson Plan Text

Past or Present? Used to/Would Speaking Game
Make a statement about your past or present with the grammar taken out, e.g. “Jog five 
miles a day”. Your partner will make what they think is a true past or present sentence 
about you using those words, e.g. “
You would jog five miles a day” or “You (often) jog five 
miles a day”. Tell them if they are correct. After discussing that if you like, switch roles and 
do the same again. Use “would” if that verb is possible, with “used to” for most others, or 
Past Simple if both those forms would be incorrect (because it wasn’t a habit just a one-off
action).
