This is an essential speaking, writing and listening activity. It is a set of 52 task cards asking questions with the verb "be". It is appropriate for beginning and intermediate students of English as a Second or Foreign Language. Many foreign students get confused when asking questions in English. This is a wonderful practice exercise for the classroom and it is a great way for students to learn about each other.
You can put the task cards face down in a plastic bowl or small box. Each student could take turns choosing a task card and asking the student nearest to him/her a question. The teacher could ask individual students to repeat the other students’ responses. This is good for listening comprehension.
There are 14 PowerPoint slides. Please print 4 task cards on one landscape page (horizontal) in PowerPoint. You can print on white card stock paper or pastel colored card stock paper. These pages can be laminated. It is a good idea to use a paper cutter. Each task card is 5 inches width by 4 inches height.
Have fun teaching!
