In a previous post I covered the use of relative pronouns and the difference between each of them (Relative Pronouns with comics and jokes)
Here are some activities for you (or your students) to play around and to hone the skills.
If you (or your students) need a quick review, start with watching a video tutorial and answering the embedded questions.
|Aim:||To practice the use of relative clauses (who, which, that, when and where)|
|Interaction:||Individually or in groups|
|Exercise type:||Filling in the gaps|
|Materials:||Slideshow, 5 pieces of paper for each student, markers|
You can also download a PDF Version of the questions slides here: Relative Pronouns Game with instructions
In the next activity you will see a relative pronoun in the middle of the screen. You need to select 4 sentences in which this relative pronoun can be used.
Each time you play the game, you are given a different relative pronoun (when, where, which or who), so you may want to play several times to practice the use of various relative pronouns.
The next game is a collection of activities. It includes 10 exercises in which you need to join two sentences with a suitable relative pronoun.
Have fun learning and teaching!
We use WHO to give more information about people.
And WHEN for time.
NB! When we add more information about something by using a relative clause, we use the article THE, not a/an
If you want to see all this gathered together and more, then check the grammar s-show below that I created for my B1 students. I used comic strips and jokes to explain and to illustrate the use of relative clauses and relative pronouns. As always, at the end of the slideshow there is an exercise to practice the skills and to check understanding.
You can also hear me going through the slideshow in a video that was made for the university I am currently teaching at.
