This is a fun way to incorporate pair or small group work when teaching IELTS speaking part 1. There are a wide range of topics which could come up in part 1 and the game is easily adaptable for any ESL classroom.
A worksheet to practice changing and recognising patterns in word forms for the IGCSE ESL topic of food. Students are given an example and then some related word. There is space for them to also choose their own words and then practice using the different word forms in sentences.
This resource can be used by language teachers and is suitable for students starting the IGCSE ESL course. The worksheet has a reading about strange foods which also introduces food adjectives and methods of cooking for vocabulary development. There is a comprehension task based on the reading as well as a vocabulary categorisation task. These are followed by 2 more personalised tasks where students need to use the vocabulary in their own way by 1) Creating their own sentences; 2) Describing a strange food from their home country by drawing and labelling.
This is a resource which could be used over 2-3 lessons. It focuses on the topic food and travel and specifically practices reading comprehension skills as well as introduces adjectives for food and cooking methods in context. There is a lot of opportunities for personalisation and this resource can be adapted to be used over more lessons. I used it with an IGCSE ESL class, but would suit any English Language Learning class.
