Try the "Hypothetically speaking" game as a way to teach students how and when to speak hypothetically in a fun, humorous way. Put students in cooperative learning groups that are mixed in levels of English comprehension. Introduce the game by example with a select student before allowing cooperative learning groups to complete it themselves.
