Speaking practice with future tenses

I used this activity to give my students practice with future tenses (will, be going to and the present continuous) with pre-intermediate students. I printed the cards on this worksheet and cut them out. I paired up the students and gave each person half of this set of cards. Then, I asked the students to randomly pick a card from their own set of cards, and answer the question without telling their partner what the question is.  Their partner's job is to try to guess the question based on the answer. It might be a good idea to warn the students not to repeat the words in the question since it might give away the answer too easily. When s/he guesses the question correctly, they change roles and repeat the same procedure.
