What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
Criss-Cross Questions (5) - May 23, 2016Lesson Collection #3 - Lesson 20e
This worksheet focuses on Present Tense Tag Questions. Pairs or small groups of students ask Present Tense Tag Questions from the worksheet in order to place a marker. But, if the English grammar is incorrect, no marker can be placed. This Tic-Tac-Toe style activity is guaranteed to bring your classes alive!Again, students compete, but this time with present tense Tag Questions. Students create the beginning of the question and end with the printed cue to complete the question. For example, . . . , does it? , . . . , isn't there? . . . , are we? and . . . , doesn't she?.
But, that's only half of the activity. The other half requires the other opponent to answer the question - not only correctly, but also with correct grammar. This ensures that students will need to listen carefully to each other. There are 25 present tense question starters on the worksheet. Student or teams try to be the first to place five markers in a row.
Normal Tic-Tac-Toe uses a 3 x 3 grid, but these worksheets introduce a 5 x 5 grid which takes a lot more time to finish. There are 8 similar worksheets available. They are: Criss-Cross Questions #1 (Past Tense - 20a above)

What a wonderful site you’ve got there, thanks for all the great ideas. I teach high school girls who really dislike studying, but even they manage to get some enjoyment from these lessons.
We EFL teachers need more sites like these.
I integrate your lessons into my syllabus so girls never get bored. For them, English should be entertainment and while most textbooks are short on that, your lessons are not.
Keep up the wonderful work!

Once again thanks,
Your EFL4U activities are honestly among the very best that I’ve discovered on the web. They are consistently imaginative, high quality and engaging. The students are motivated and the classes are lively.
