Product Description
This is aimed at adult ESL/EFL learners. It could also be used with teenagers.

It's a simple one-page handout to encourage learners to practise the past tenses (past simple, past continuous, past perfect) by creating a short story. It prompts learners to create a character, decide on a location, and choose a situation to write about.

It can be used as an oral production activity after the presentation and practice of the past tenses. Learners could work together to create short stories in pairs or groups, and then re-tell them to the class.

It can also be used as written work, either in class or for homework, to revise the past tenses.
