A board game will allow my students practise the grammar in a fun way and this activity can be used repeatedly. Have got board game.pdfDownload Print the file once for each group of 2-4...

A few hours later I encountered a short explanation of the same grammar by Australiaplus.com, and I realised that I wanted to share both with my friends on the Internet. This post is the result.
