This is a simple activity where students ask each other passive-voiced questions to find out which two students on their worksheets are a couple.

- The objective is to find out who the two couples are.
- After handing out the Worksheets A & C to the class, they mingle, greet, play Janken, and the winners starts by asking their partner, "Is ~~ liked by ~~?" Based upon the arrows on their worksheet, the partner responds, "Yes/No, ~~ is (not) liked by ~~." If there is no arrow on their worksheet, they reply, "I don't know." Then, they switch question/answer roles.
- Once complete, they find another partner and repeat the process. However, if a student receives an "I don't know." there next partner must be a teacher.
- Once they figure out who the two couples are, they return to their seat, flip their worksheet over and practice writing their passive-voiced responses.
- BTW, the two couples are Minako/Osamu and Hiroshi/Tomoko.
- For higher level classes, have to practice writing more complicated sentences: "Noriko is liked by Tadashi, but Noriko doesn't like Tadashi. She likes Osamu."
- To keep 40 students from walking around the classroom, have only the students with Worksheet A stand up and walk around the class. Worksheet C students must remain seated.
- Watch that the students don't simply show each other their worksheets instead of forming passive-voiced questions.
