Jobs & Work – Speaking activity

Type: Jukebox

Use this activity online or offline to introduce the topic of Jobs & Work by matching sentence halves while practicing reading and speaking in English.

How to use this activity?

Display the poster on the screen and give your students a time limit to generate as many correct phrases as possible by associating the two sentence halves.

My mother worked… as an accountant / on Saturdays / at a factory.

To make it harder, add a constraint such as funny/sad/boring/normal sentences. For every correct sentence, the student earns a point.

You could also ask your students to make long sentences by putting together several of the sentence halves on the right side in a logical order.

As a teacher of ESL and French as a foreign language for several years, I have had the opportunity to work in several countries and with a wide variety of students. Now my job got even better: I get to help make your lessons all pretty and fun! Rather cool, I'd say.

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!
