The standard order of words in an English sentence is subject + verb + object. While this sounds simple, there are far more complicated sentences where placing the words in the right order may turn out quite challenging.
Here we have prepared three types of interactive exercises created on Learning Apps and suitable for the Intermediate level.
Task 1. Choose the correct word order of the sentences
This exercise presents two options of sentences in which one sentence has the correct word order while the other does not. Here students get a general understanding of word order in English.
Task 2. Put the words in the correct order
Here students go deeper and have more practice with the word order in English. In the exercise, they will find examples with different types of adjectives, adverbs, indirect questions, etc.
Task 3. Complete the questions with the correct question tags
The last exercise aims to check how well your students know the rules of question tags.
Share with us in the comments below how effective the exercises were and how you usually practise word order with your Intermediate students.
