These Past Tense conversation questions for A2-B2 Pre-Intermediate- Intermediate ESL students are designed to practice Past Simple, Present Perfect, Past Continuous, Past Perfect & Past Perfect Continuous. They are great for practicing simple question and answer conversations and listening skills in small groups or as a partner activity. The questions are grouped into grammar categories for ease of use. They are small and can be used on-the-go or pulled out during any lesson for extra practice. This set is an essential for ESL teachers. It's extremely useful to get your students speaking while using specific, targeted, level appropriate grammar.

What's included in this pdf file: (130+ prompts)

  • Past Simple: WH- Why, When, Where, What, What time + How
  • Past Continuous
  • Present Perfect* - How long | For & Since.
  • Past Perfect:
  • Past Perfect
  • Past Perfect Continuous

*While present perfect is a present tense, I've included it with the past tenses since most educators teach this tense along with past tenses

Just laminate, cut them out and use. You can also punch a hole at the top and put them all on a ring. This is a great activity to get your students talking at the beginning of each lesson or to focus on a specific grammar structure that they have just learned or reviewed.
