Rufus Wainright is a singer/songwriter famous for songs such as 'Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk' and his cover of 'Hallelujah'. I really enjoy his music and his unusual voice. Here is an interview with him that appeared in UK newspaper 'The Guardian' last year. All you need to do is match the interviewer's questions with his answers. This is excellent for practising your reading comprehension. Let us know how you get on!

Can you remember how to ask these questions? In each question there is one missing word. For example:

"___is your favourite teacher?"

The missing word is who.

Only use one word for each question and use the present simple.

If you have time, tell us your answers to these questions!

Writing Practice - what is your opinion?

I recently had a Spanish oral test and I found it really helpful to predict the questions I thought they might and then ask my friend to ask me them.

It is difficult to do a speaking lesson for an online website, but with the help of a friend it can be done!

So, your challenge is to find a friend to ask you these questions and then practise away...!

After you have done the speaking, I’d be really interested to hear some of your answers!

Use Wh- Questions for information

Average: 3.3 (17 votes)

Wh- Questions are a good way to find out more information because they cannot be answered with 'yes' or 'no'.

Let's practice using wh- question words to make questions. Choose the best word for each question.

When? = Time

Where? = Place

Who? = Person

Why? = Reason

How? = Manner (way/amount)

What? = Object

Which = Choice

Here's another chance to make sure you know how to correctly form questions. All you have to do is choose the correct question for each given answer. We had a similar exercise last month called ' Which question is best?' - when lots of you said you got 10/10. Can you get them all right again. Let us know how you did.

I have an Intermediate level exercise for you today. Which questions are the best match for the answers? I don't think these questions are too difficult as long as you read all the questions carefully.

Let me know how you did. Who got 10 /10? Also, tell me which questions you find confusing and myself, or another helpful user, will explain the solution. Let's help each other out as much as we can. If you can explain  another person's problem, do it!

Go team!!
