I used this song to prepare this worksheet contrasting the Present Simple and the Present Continuous. There are plenty of examples in the lyrics, so I prepared a numbered gap-filling. The students have to find the missing verb (given in the infinitive) and use the verb in the tense required.
They'll find other exercises on the second page:
- Sentences to complete with the present simple or continuous (they have to choose which one to use);
- Exercises to write about habits (the student's and his/her family's) using the present simple;
- A multiple choice to practice both tenses in the negative, affirmative and interrogative forms.
- They also have a brief grammar guide + examples on the present simple and continuous on the second page.
The worksheet is in docx format, if you are using an Office old verson (97/2003 or older), please visit the Microsoft site, download the "Microsoft compatibility pack" and instal it before opening the file.
