Learn how to use cloze activities in the ESL classroom

Cloze activities can be used in a number of ways. Here I am using them to help students answer some questions. This will help them formulate sentences correctly. Here's an example.

Question: "Where are Mike, Billy and Andrew from?"

Answer: "They are from ____, _____, and _____."

This gives them some clue to the answer, but not the whole thing. After they have written these answers down you can review them. Have one student read the question and the other the answer.
