Same or different. A pair work activity. Cut the activity sheet in half length ways so that each learner has a number of graphs in front of him, numbered from one to five (one is learner A, the other learner B). For each numbered graph, the two are either the same or different. The learners have to describe their graph to each other to determine which ones are the same and which ones are different.

Which graph am I describing? On the sheet are a number of simple graphs. A learner describes a graph and the others must decide which graph is being described.

Matching graphs. For two learners. Each learner has the same graphs but not in the same order. To further confuse issues, one set is labelled with letters, the other numbers. They have to describe their graphs to each other in order to match them i.e. to find the letters and numbers which correspond to the same graph.

Future prediction cards. Learners use the cards to practise making predictions on the future. Cut the cards up and place them in a pile on the table. In groups the learners can take them one by one and use them to make their prediction e.g. for 'life expectancy', the learner could say 'I think people will live longer in the future'.. The cards may also further be used as a basis for a discussion on the future.

Forecasting figures. Learners predict figures for the future on a number of topics. The figures were taken from a feature in Newsweek Dec. 27/ Jan. 3, 2000. The missing figures are; 1) Life expectancy 2025- 72.5; 2) World population 2025- 8.5 billion; 3) Health 2025: people per doctor- 2500; health care costs- 400 billion $; hospital beds- 23m; 4) The poor 2025: living in poverty- 3300m; undernourished- 500m; no proper shelter- 700m.

Comparing graphs. A pair work activity to practise making comparisons. Learners look at graphs which show two or more results and compare them. The activity can be done as a short practice activity or given as a mini presentation task for the learners to perform.

Comparing products: televisions. A pair work activity to practise making comparisons. This activity can be used as a task to see how learners perform before introducing the language of comparing, or it can be used as a practice activity. You may also wish to change the context of the activity. You could tell your learners to imagine they were a headmaster and had to buy a TV for their local school or they wanted to organise a raffle in their company.

A company presentation. Learners use the information provided to make a short presentation of a language school. There are five sheets in total. The first shows the overall structure of the presentation; the second information about the company; the third the different clients; the fourth information about the courses and the fifth the different training formats. The presentation may best be prepared and presented in pairs or small groups with learners sharing the presenting.
