TEFL language patterns - Talking about feelings

70 conversations prompts categorised for the teaching and elicitation of two grammar patterns:

it makes me … (40 prompts) e.g. What makes you angry at work?

emotion adjective + about… (30 prompts) Are you worried about the future?

These cards allow learners to share their opinions in a natural way that encourages the free production of language, while at the same time encouraging the noticing and acquisition of the core grammar patterns. Whether you choose to pre-teach or post-teach the grammar points, these cards enable you to easily set up communicative discussions between pairs or small groups of learners.

Made for a variety of levels, it is encouraged that teachers of lower-level students first select the cards they feel are most appropriate for the abilities and interests of their students.
