Housing – 4 activities for vocab practice

Vocabulary is great but using it is even better! Inside this resource, you will find 4 original activities concerning housing for your A2 students.


Our VOCABTIVATE resources are bundles of activities whose tasks are varied, aesthetic, motivating and ready-to-use. All you have to do is print and cut out the sheets, hand them out to your students …and it’s game on for up to two hours of class time!

Each activity:

  • allows you to practice the vocabulary in both written or spoken form;
  • can be used independently, together, or in addition to your own lesson plans;
  • creates opportunities for cooperation and interaction;
  • highlights the theme in an original way;
  • can be used with the vocabulary list found in the downloadable PDF;
  • comes with instructions for the teacher on how to use them;

Vocabtivates are the perfect tool for:

  • finishing or replacing a lesson plan;
  • reviewing vocabulary;
  • getting students to use their existing knowledge in conversation.

    I’ve used this in French and it’s great but for some reason can’t download it, though I have a membership. It seems like the “download” button has disappeared and when you click on the “subscribe to newsletter” link, it just takes you back to the home page.

      The link has been fixed, you should be able to download it with your TTA for free once you’ve logged in. Thanks for notifying us of this problem.

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!
