With this activity we practise any kind of conditional sentence, depending on our students level.
The teacher writes on the board the beginning of a conditional sentence, i.e. "If I were rich,...", so the first student has to finish it. Then, the next classmate has to begin a new sentence using the last part of his/her mate sentence. For example, if the first pupil said: "If I were rich, I would go to London.", then the second one has to start by saying:"If I went to London,...". Students link one sentence with another, making any necessary changes.
This exercise has both structuralist (students repeat the same pattern several times) and communicative characteristics (they create new language), and most of the times, it is funny to see the way students link their sentences.
Try in class and tell me what you think.
