Neither yes nor no


The students ask each other yes-no-questions, but they are not allowed to answer them with neither "Yes" nor "No". Here some ideas: Maybe. Perhaps. We'll see. OK. All right. Oh, very good. I hate that. Yeah, great. I don't like that.
Her an example:
Are you going to go to the cinema tonight? Perhaps.
Are you going to go to the beach tomorrow? We'll see.

Educational objective:

  • practise and strengthen yes-no-questions
