Lr/E3.5b: Respond to requests for information

  • Recognise a number of question types (e.g. embedded questions) and understand the type and amount of detail expected in different contexts
  • Recognise verb forms and time markers appropriate for the level, and respond appropriately. Example:  Have you finished yet? - I think I have.

(See also Sc/E3.4b)

This activity can be used as an icebreaker or as resource when teaching about 3rd person agreement in the present tense.  

Learners ask 'Do you ..... ?' and use the answers in the box to complete the question however after the Tutor's monitoring they should realise that the answer form cannot be used for the question form.  

The questionnaire has 16 boxes but according to time and size of class, it can be reduced by folding the questionnaire so only 8 questions are used instead.
