Can you tell me the way...?
In this pairwork activity, students practice asking for and giving directions using prepositions
of movement and place.
Before class, make one copy of the worksheet for each pair of students and cut as indicated.
Procedure
Begin by asking the students about places near to the school, e.g. Can you tell me the way
to the supermarket?
Make sure they begin: Go out of the school, turn left, etc.
As they are giving you directions, write the key expressions they use on the board, e.g. go
straight, go along, turn left/right, go past, in front of, opposite, across from, etc. If need be,
review prepositions of place and movement with the class.
Tell the students that they are going to practice asking for and giving directions.
Ask the students what question they would use to ask for directions.
Elicit the question: Can you tell me the way to...?
Divide the class into pairs (A and B) and hand each student a corresponding worksheet.
Tell the students that they must keep their worksheet secret until they have finished the
activity.
Explain that the students have maps containing different information. They also have eight
places they need to find.
Their task is to ask their partner where the eight places are and write the locations on the
map.
Check the students know where they are on the map (at the top of North Road).
Student A goes first and asks Student B for directions to the places written below the map.
When Student A has been given directions to the place they want to go to, they write the
name of the place on their map.
When Student A has found all eight places, the students swap roles.
Afterwards, the students compare their maps and see if they have marked the places
correctly.
