Clothing – Recommendation

The British Council has three worksheets about clothing that I have used in combination with each other. They can all be found here:

Thumbs Up Clothes – Topics

Look in the right-hand column for Favourite Clothes, Clothes Match, and Getting Dressed. By far, Favourite Clothes was the most successful, because I had the students volunteer to read their resulting sentences.

Pronunciation – Recommendation

The following activity is great for teaching past tense pronunciation. I have not used the story, but I have used the worksheet.

*Please note, however, “studied” should be removed from the “id” column; this is an error (it belongs in the “d” column).

Thumbs Up ESOL beginner lessons: pronunciation

Extreme Adjectives – Recommendation

I have used the following resource from One Stop English for vocabulary building:

Thumbs Up Grammar: vocabulary (extreme adjectives)

I especially like the first page of the student worksheets. It can be used to open a discussion of other synonyms.
