Name the Hobby!

20 quotes from people with all sorts of hobbies and pastimes. Students must match a hobby to each quotation. Great starting off point for discussions!


  1. Use this as an individual worksheet, class activity, or in pairs or small groups.
  2. There are 20 quotations from individuals talking about their favorite hobby or pastime (it’s the same thing, in case your students ask and you never googled it).
  3. Their goal is to match one of the hobbies at the bottom with each quotation.
  4. Share the corrections with the class at the end to see who got the most correct.
  5. Use this as a jumping off point for paired conversations giving prompts such as “Choose 3 hobbies you’d like to try.” or “Do you have any of these hobbies?” or “Which hobby would you definitely never get into?” etc.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
