Formal and Informal Language

Can your learners identify formal and informal language? The first exercise has learners categorize 10 sentences into one of three columns: formal, informal, or slang. Then learners take these 10 sentences and rewrite them in a more neutral tone of voice. The last exercise has them place certain words (some are formal, some are informal) in the appropriate sentences. This is a great activity to complete prior to any formal writing or speaking unit.
