Resource Description

"Guess why" is a short activity to practise Present Perfect in context. In this speaking game the students have to make a sentence using the subject, mood or condition and a verb combination from the table provided. They read to their partner the first part of the sentence, describing the mood or condition of the subject. Their partner has to guess the reason using the verbs from the table in Present Perfect.

The activity contains instructions for the teacher, worksheet for the students and example of how the activity works. It is designed for lower-intermediate and intermediate learners of English as a foreign language.
