  • I've just come across this lesson by typing 'ordinals' into the 'search' box. It's brilliant - it's absolutely perfect for what I need on Wednesday! Thank you again. Onestopenglish is a life-saver for me at the moment. It is an Aladdin's cave. The more go in, the more I find! Thank you!

  • Hi Sue,

    The worksheet is part of the lesson plan which you can find under 'Related resources'. it's the last two pages of the file.

    Hope that helps!

  • Dear Onestopenglish team,

    I seem to be having difficulty in finding the actual worksheet. The lesson plan looks great and wonderful that it is now updated to 2017 dates. I looked at the 2016 some weeks ago but would appreciate having access to the 2017 worksheet.

    Thank you for your assistance, Sue

  • I've just downloaded the worksheet and it still has the 2016 dates. Could you check this? It would be good to use 2017 dates.

  • High.
    Still too difficult for my students at the moment - but would be good if you updated it again to 2017. I might get them to this stage later in the year!

  • Hi Gypsy Global,

    Thanks for your feedback. All resources on the site are currently undergoing review and updates are being made where possible. However, in the meantime, why not ask your students to adapt the questions to make them up to date? That way they will get double the practice speaking about dates!

    Best wishes,

    The onestopenglish team

  • These are good but they all need to be updated for this year!

  • This lesson was written 10 years ago. Outdated which reflects badly on the website.
