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.
Three-Minute Interview 08 - July 21, 2014Lesson Collection #2 - Lesson 1h
Past Tense Verbs with Regular and Tag Questions
There are 22 regular and tag questions per worksheet. With only three minutes to complete all, students have to insert the missing verbs and ask the questions quickly. Both interviewer and interviewee have to listen carefully as well.
The first time through, pairs of students may need ten minutes or more to complete all of the questions. But, after a couple of tries, most students will be able to do all of the questions in three minutes, and when they do, they’ll feel very accomplished.
Students must provide the missing verb of each question (they are not printed) by choosing from the following: Was… / Wasn’t… Were… / Weren’t… Did… / Didn’t… and Could… / Couldn’t…
These Lesson Worksheets were developed to assist students with fundamental verb usage, building fluency, listening, pronouns and subject / verb agreement.
The following are some of the questions found on these worksheets:
You _____ born with red hair, _____ _____?
How often _____ you oversleep last month?
_____ you a good or a bad child?
I just wanted to say that I think that the lessons you have on your site are great. I have found that the lessons work well in class and my students really enjoy them.
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!

Other language-teaching resource books promise exciting, ready-to-copy activities, but these worksheets really deliver the goods.
There are millions of EFL ESL books here in the library, but I use your worksheets more than any of the others combined.
I love them. My students love them.
