This is one of my all-time favorite activities to reinforce future forms will and be going to. In groups of 3-4, students practice switching between be going to and will as they plan and present the perfect party.

Also included is a grammar and pronunciation review of contracted forms, how to use gonna correctly, and what the difference between will and be going to really is. The presentation activity is always a crowd pleaser! For High Beginner-Intermediate ELLs.
