Time Clauses

Time clauses Mind map final

In time clauses it is important to understand that you cannot use WILL after certain conjunctions, even though you are referring to the future. And that is the whole trick. If you do this (not will do this), your English will be fine. And that is what you need.


Time clauses – mind map

To make this concept clearer I have created the following mind map. Read the mind map clockwise and start at 12 o’clock.

Time clauses – games

As the grammar point is quite simple to understand, I have created only two games to practise this. The first one is called Fling the Teacher and if you answer (not will answer) all the questions correctly you will fire the teacher because you won’t need him any more. So what are you waiting for? FLING THE TEACHER!

Fling the teacher – time clauses.

The second game is ideal for a classroom. You can work in two teams and the teams fight against each other. If you answer incorrectly your opponent gets a free chance to hurt you.

    There is an error in the 1st example. It should read 'you will be late to school' not 'come late'
