Never, Ever Have I Ever - ESL speaking game for beginners and advanced students
ESL speaking game for beginners and advanced students alike, a fun NO PREP activity. All students can practice speaking and forming the present perfect tense with regular and irregular verbs. The past participles are written on the cards. The way the cards are organized even beginners can use them and have a great time playing this fun speaking game. Students practice saying "Never, ever have I ever" or "I have" followed by something they may or may not have done.

Use this game in class with small groups or at a language club event. Just print out the cards, laminate if possible, punch holes in the upper corner and attach with a keychain. A fun no prep activity for years to come!

Included with this resource:

75 game cards - Black and white and color versions - Ready to print, laminate, cut out, punch holes and hook together with a key ring.

Here's how the game works:

Begin your sentence with "Never, ever have I ever" if you have never done what is written on the card. Begin with "I have" if you have done it.

Other players can react in a variety of ways:
Me too.
Me neither.
I have, too.

If you say that you have done something (and you're not a beginner) you have to tell the story about when you did what is on the card in English.
Save for later
