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)

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.
Margaret Holt - ESL Teacher,
I use your activities a lot with my students and they find them really motivating!!!
They ask for them!!!!!! =) They have real fun!!!
Thanks to you, Kurt.
I just want to thank you for all your hard work on the website & the many ideas & worksheets you provide for ESL teachers all over the world.
Other language-teaching resource books promise exciting, ready-to-copy activities, but these worksheets really deliver the goods.
A HUGE THANKS !!
Because of what you do at EFL4U, my school is one of the best in the city. I think it’s really important for students to have fun, to act, to react and learn English by using it! With your active lessons, my students do all of that, and more….
Grammar is taught after or before the lessons… and all of my students learn while having lots of fun.
Kurt, EFL4U IS THE BEST THING THAT I HAVE RECEIVED. EVERY YEAR, YOU ARE MY SANTA CLAUS.
