Wish/If Only Revision Stories Handout
The worksheet is intended to serve as a revision exercise on the wish/if only structure. It should be used after students have mastered the form and use of different wish/if only structures. The worksheet consists of nine short texts resembling real-life situations. The teacher cuts the texts out before the lesson and later on asks students to choose the pieces at random. After a student has drawn a piece, she/he has to read the story and decide which type of wish/if only construction to use. Students are asked to imagine that they are the character described in the stories. Thus, they are asked to create wish/if only structures in the first person, for instance 'I wish people would stop talking on their mobile phones while driving'. As a follow-up activity, the teacher could also provide students with a handout featuring all the texts with spaces underneath each text to complete with an appropriate wish/if only construction in the first person.
