Give each student a copy of the worksheet. Before students start the activity, write the following adverbs and expressions of frequency on the board and describe their usage:
|hardly ever||once or twice a year|
|occasionally||once or twice a month|
|often||once or twice a week|
Students start by going through the worksheet, creating the “How often do you…?” questions, which they will ask around the class, for example “How often do you go shopping?”
Students then go around the classroom asking their questions to other students. When someone replies using the same adverb or expression of frequency as that on their worksheet for the given question, the student then writes down their name and answer in the columns provided.
If the classmate’s answer doesn’t match the adverb or expression of frequency on the worksheet, the student asks the question of others until someone gives a matching answer, such as “I go shopping once a week”.
When everyone has completed the task, the students take turns to give feedback to the class on what they learned about their classmates.
