ESL Future Time Clauses Game - Speaking: Battleships, Asking and Answering Questions from Prompts, Freer Practice - Pair Work - Intermediate (B1) - 30 minutes

In this free future time clauses game, students play Battleships by asking and answering questions that use future time clauses. Students begin by marking four ships on their grid. Students then take it in turns to choose a square on their partner's grid. However, instead of giving a grid reference, the student makes a yes/no question using the corresponding household chore and future time clause, e.g. 'Will you wash the dishes when you have time?' Their partner listens to the question, looks at their grid and answers according to whether it is a hit or miss. If it's a hit, their partner replies positively, e.g. 'Yes, I will.' If it's a miss, they reply negatively, e.g. 'I'm sorry, I can't'. The student then marks the square with a 'H' for hit or 'X' for miss. The first student to sink all their partner's ships wins the game.
