Plans For Next Week

The aim of this worksheet is to let students practise using the present continuous for upcoming plans. e.g. "What are you doing on Monday next week? I'm watching a movie at the cinema."

You can start the class by brainstorming free time activities, then highlight the ones that we would normally plan in advance as these are the ones we would be most likely to use with the present continuous. Then students ask each other "What are you doing on ___day next week?" and write their partners' answers in the boxes. They don't need to say their real plans, encourage them to use the activities brainstormed on the board.

Next, highlight the 3rd person forms "What is [name] doing on Monday next week? (S)he is watching a movie at the cinema." Then allow 1 minute for students to try to memorise as much as they can of their sheet. In pairs, ask them to swap sheets and test each other's memories using the 3rd person form - 1 point for each correct answer.

Wrap up the class with some kind of charades or pictionary game for the free time activities used in the class. I've done this class many times now and it always works nicely!

This printable, downloadable handout is meant for at Pre-intermediate (A2) level. It is a useful material for practising Present continuous (progressive) tense in English, and was designed for enhancing your students' Speaking skills. It is about the theme of Free time, leisure activities and Hobbies.
