Famous People Speaking Activity Cards

Simple cards featuring a variety of famous people (most of them no longer with us) to be used when practicing years, birthdays plus introduction of the past simple of [i]to be[/i]\. I created them with my adult beginner students in mind so they could ask and answer about ages and birthdays without having to give their own information (this activity ties in nicely with Unit 9 in the Headway Beginner book). I find that students of all ages enjoy taking on "new identities". This worksheet is fully editable so that you can adapt the famous people to suit the students you teach and the culture you teach in. Not to mention, adapt it for teens (e.g.: Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, Tupac, Amy Winehouse, etc. ) Have fun!

The above printable, downloadable handout is a great resource for business/professional, high school and adults at Beginner (pre-A1) level. It is a useful material for consolidating Past simple tense in English, and was designed for improving your groups' Speaking skills. It is about the theme of Birthdays.
