Files

Explanation

1. Print and shuffle the attached cards. Give each student one card face down.

2. Read the left hand side of the cards with the students so they understand it. Practice using "When do you ~" with the phrases on the left, e.g. "What time do you study English?"

3. Each card is one of a pair. The students stand up and walk around the room asking each other about their cards. When a student finds another person with the same card, they should come to the front of the class room to prove that they have finished to the teacher.

Tips

* Review the dialog and how to tell time with the students well before starting the activity. Make sure students don't forget to say the "on" in "on Monday" in their answers.

* Make sure students don't cheat and use Japanese, or look at each other's cards

* If you have fewer than 32 students, take the remaining cards yourself, and play the game while checking all your cards. That way each student still has a partner (though it might be you).

* If you have more than 32 students, print up an extra copy of the cards, and simply have the students make groups of three instead of pairs.
