Students look at their schedule for next week and see the days and times they are available and take it in turns to make arrangements with a partner to do the four activities shown on their worksheet, arranging a day and time when they are both free for each activity.

Scheduling and Rescheduling

ESL Scheduling and Rescheduling Activity - Speaking: Asking and Answering Questions from Prompts - Pair and Group work - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this free making arrangements activity, students practice making arrangements and rescheduling. Students begin by making arrangements to do different activities with six classmates. Students move around the classroom, talking to different classmates one at a time using the example dialogue on the worksheet to guide them. When the students have agreed on a time slot for the arrangement, both students write the activity and their partner's name in the schedule. Students then move on to speak to a new partner. Each student must choose a different activity to do with each partner and can only schedule one appointment in each time slot. Next, in groups of four, students make arrangements to do a different activity with each group member as before, rescheduling appointments when needed and writing each arrangement in the schedule. Finally, students arrange one activity to do together as a group and a time to meet, rescheduling earlier arrangements as necessary. At the end of the activity, each student will have a total of ten different scheduled activities.
