One of the grammar topics that tends to cause confusion in a classroom is usage of infinitives and gerunds (often there are problems with memorising the right verbs). When one of my intermediate groups was having difficulties remembering the right forms for the right verbs I had an idea to make a kind of a grammar puzzle after we went through all possible kinds of explanations, exercises and games, just to let them revise the verbs again and to refresh their memories:-)
Here you can download 2 different versions, intermediate and intermediate +. (some more advanced verbs are added to the second copy)
the idea is quite easy: you have to print out 2 copies for the group. cut one of them and leave the 2nd one uncut. As for cutting, I’d suggest cutting out some of the verbs and leaving the framework and several verbs uncut, just to get them started and to save some time. When they are finished, you can give them the uncut copy so that they can check themselves and take it home with them.
*If you have a big group, it would probably be best to ask them to work in groups of 3-4 people and to try to beat the other team(s).
And what do you do about remembering the gerund/ infinitive verbs?
