This plans worksheet
is a writing activity for intermediate students to practice using the simple future. Students read a letter and correct a variety of errors to properly complete the message. Since the mistakes are clearly indicated, your students should be able to make corrections with ease. If you would like to do another type of activity or are working on something a little different, consider using one of the other available worksheets. There is also a great article in this section about creating lesson plans so if you feel like you could improve in this area, go ahead and take a minute to read it.
Plans are often used in ESL classrooms to practice using the future tense. You can ask students what they plan to do on the weekend, in the summer, or even further in to the future. For adult learners you can talk about their plans for the next year and the next ten years; discuss the differences between the two and see if their short term and long goals work together. For writing activities ask students to plan an event such as a vacation, wedding, or party which will get students in a creative mood and lead to some fun answers. The future simple is not very complicated but you can make plan related activities as easy or as challenging as your choose.
