This insightful interjections worksheet helps students learn and practice some interjections that are commonly used in the English language.

Next, in pairs, students compare the interjections with words used in their own language to express the same feelings and emotions to see if they are the same or different. Students also discuss other interjections they use to express feelings and emotions. After that, students begin sentences with suitable interjections from a box. In the last exercise, students write down eight interjections from the worksheet and create a suitable following sentence for each one. Afterwards, they read their sentences to a partner without saying the interjection to see if they can guess what it is.

Students then take it in turns to read the sentences on their worksheet to their partner who has to find and provide a suitable interjection to begin each sentence. If both students agree it's correct, the student writes the interjection before the sentence. If not, the student asks their partner for other suggestions. The race continues until all the sentences on both worksheets have been matched with an interjection. The first pair to correctly complete all the sentences wins the race.

ESL Interjections Game - Vocabulary: Matching, Sentence Completion - Group Work - Upper-intermediate (B2) - 20 minutes

In this engaging interjections game, students play bingo by matching interjections with sentences. You or a student reads a sentence at random from the caller's sheet, saying the word 'blank' where the interjection should be. Students look at their bingo cards. If they have a suitable interjection that can go in the place of the ‘blank’, they cross it off. The game continues until a student has crossed off all the interjections on their card. When this happens, the student shouts 'Bingo!' and reads out the interjections they crossed off. If they match with the sentences, the student wins the game. Play several rounds with students receiving a different bingo card each time.
