A language game for students to practice asking and answering past continuous questionsSugerencia de uso
1. Download the file and make copies for students.
2. Divide the class into groups of three or four and give each group a set of picture cards and a set of time cards.
3. Go through the picture cards and elicit the various activities.
4. Ask the students to shuffle the picture cards and then deal them out equally. The time cards should be shuffled and placed face
down in a pile on the desk.
5. The first student picks up the top time card from the pile and asks the player on their right what they were doing at that time
yesterday, e.g. 'What were you doing at 6:00 a.m. yesterday?'
6. The player must then choose one of their picture cards, show the card to the other students and give a convincing answer that
matches with the time on the card, e.g. 'I was drinking coffee'. If the answer is appropriate for that time of day, the player can
discard their picture card.
7. If the answer is doubtful, e.g. 'I was studying English', the other students challenge the player and ask them to provide a convincing
explanation as to why they were doing that activity at that time of day.
8. If the player can provide a reasonable explanation, the picture card can be discarded, e.g. 'I was studying English, because...'
If not, the player must keep the picture card. The next student then picks up a time card and asks the player on their right what they were doing at that time yesterday and so on.
9. The first player to get rid of all their picture cards wins the game
