You can always place a link to RoadToGrammar on your blog or website. You do not need to ask permission, just go ahead and place the link.

2 Extended Practice

These are slightly longer practice activities, usually containing 40 or more questions. They will certainly be useful if you are doing that particular topic with your students.

The extended practice activities will work well on a Smartboard and can be carried out as a class activity. These activities can also work well as a warm-up activity. For example, you could do ten questions from the idioms activity (roadtogrammar.com/idioms) and see how many the class can get right.

Most of these activities will work on a mobile device.

3 Games

The FLUENT game can be used as a class activity with two teams (roadtogrammar.com/fluent).

There is a simple ESL Trivia game that is ideal as a warm-up activity: roadtogrammar.com/trivia

Simply divide the class into two teams and ask them to answer the question that appears. The first team to ten points wins (for example).
