Binomials in English worksheet

fishHi all!

Here’s a worksheet I made for a group of intermediate – upper intermediate students on the subject of binomials (words that are often linked by a conjunction and are often irreversible). I used this after a common binomial was in a reading text I was teaching.

You could also use this to generate a discussion about the binomials your students have in their language.

Anyway, enjoy!
