ESOL resources for adjectives.  Word bank, presentations, word-searches.

ESOL resources for adjectives. Word bank, presentations, word-searches.

Assorted resources for teaching and learning adjectives in English. Designed for ESOL, but equally useful for primary or secondary support. A word bank of the most common adjectives. We used this by cutting out the words, and matching opposites, or antonyms. A slide show of the same words, just for display, or for asking learners to provide synonyms and antonyms. Works well on an iPad for sharing in pairs. Plus another version of the same words with additional slides showing most common antonyms, as found in Roget’s Thesaurus. Finally a pair of rather big word searches. Please make smaller ones (easy to find software online) if these prove too big.
