Something I do with my adult students for the classes is composing worksheets that we’ll work out on them.
Thanks to God they like them – they’re great students and with a huge motivation – and even they study them at home albeit I set no homework.
They are about for example The Airport and Traveling by Plane.
The point is they should catch useful expressions and idioms that could help them in real life, basically.
Now they’re at the stage of beginning to speak for long more or less (10 or 15 minutes, though I told them to prepare stuff for minimum a couple of minutes).
Other times I compose stories, with sentences with a correlative number, on A4 sheet format.
Well, the best is showing you one of them; I’m trying. Let’s see. I’m afraid about the format thing. Sorry readers, the format thing didn't work fine. At least you can make out what a worksheet is. / Photo from: continuing education. www mnn com

1. When you hear people talk about Washington, D.C., you may want to know what the letters D.C. mean.

4. Washington State is thousands of miles away on the north-west coast.
5. Washington, D.C. lies between Virginia and Maryland on the Potomac River.
6. The most pleasant an easiest way to get there is long-distance bus, or by plane too, which is practical.
7. It’s not a city that has grown up accidentally as most big cities have done.

1. Many years ago there was a war between two planets, Kripton and Andromeda.
2. Andromeda’s people were being defeated by Kripton’s forces.

4. Brandorn also decided to send his only daughter to the same galaxy.
5. So, they carefully put both little children into a capsule.
6. The capsule traveled for millions and millions of light-year stars (from the earth) at light speed.
7. Then the capsule detected a blue planet, a beautiful one, and headed for it.
