Complete and entertaining - just the odd tweak needed. Thanks

This is great. I'm going to get them to play a game with this. I've printed them as cards. They'll do one sentence, then pass on the card to the next person.

This is useful as a starting point for devising lessons - have adapted it though for teaching so that the students engage with it better than just looking at PPT and attempting their own sentences.

I have used this loads of times and it really helps learners to understand about sentence structure.
