New to ESOL – Question words

The learners begin by reviewing positive sentence construction by predicting answers to a set of questions, and checking these against picture prompts. They then use the pictures to remember the question which was originally asked. There is further reinforcement of question formation through reordering activities. Finally learners are given the opportunity to personalise their learning with a questionnaire and feedback activity.
