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 (8) - July 27, 2015Lesson Collection #3 - Lesson 20h
This worksheet stimulates students to ask Present Tense Questions, both Regular and Tag Questions. Pairs or small groups of students ask Present Tenses Questions from the worksheet in order to place a marker.Students compete by creating questions such as: What does . . . ? . . . , is she? When do . . . ? and . . . , are they?
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. But, if the English grammar is incorrect, no marker can be placed. Students will become quite animated with this simple Tic-Tac-Toe style activity. 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)
Criss-Cross Questions #2 (Present Tense - 20b above)
Criss-Cross Questions #3 (Mixed Tenses - 20c above)

My life as an English teacher changed dramatically when I purchased all of the great lessons from EFL4U.com. I use them constantly! My students always light up when I bring one to class. Truly fab. Fun, creative, educational.
Your site is absolutely great, my students love your worksheets and we all have learned a lot. Congratulations to the whole staff for a marvelous job.
Thanks a lot….Laura

I sincerely thank you and your entire team of wonderful professionals who are contributing tremendously to making the teaching of English a lot more fun and easy!
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.
