Smokie - Just When I Needed You Most

A listening/discussion/writing worksheet based on the song "Just When I Needed You Most" by Smokie.
The listening part is a gap fill exercise. I suggest to play the song once first, before handing out the worksheet. For the first three verses the missing words are given 1) in the wrong order 2) with the letters mixed up and 3) in the wrong order. For the remaining verses the missing words aren't given. A key (full lyrics) is included. A part of the gap fill, almost all verbs have been omitted from the song so this worksheet could also be used as a lead in to practice irregular and regular verbs.
For the discussion part I have included a couple of questions to invite the students to think about the song and give reasons for what might have happened.
As for the writing part, students are asked to compose a short letter from "him" to "her" and it would be fun to share these letters with the class and vote for the most romantic just to end the class on a high note. Alternatively, if you want to omit the writing part, just get the students to sing the song together for a little bit of fun.

The above printable, downloadable handout is meant for high school students and adults at Elementary (A1), Pre-intermediate (A2), Intermediate (B1), Upper-intermediate (B2), Advanced (C1) and Proficient (C2) level. It is great for teaching Verb tenses in English, and is excellent for strengthening your students' Listening, Speaking and Writing skills. It is about the topic and words of Future, Love, romance, dating, Marriage, Memories, People and Women and men, gender roles. You will find the solution at the end of the worksheet.
