This worksheet focusing on jobs vocabulary can either be used as an individual or team reading exercise (page 1) or as a team game (page 2). As an extension, you can even make it into a writing lesson which students will surely enjoy. Full instructions provided on page 3. Have fun.

Please note that some of the jobs are depicted as being female jobs such as nurse but this is not always necessarily so although in many countries the proportion of female nurses is much higher than male nurses. It goes without saying that both men and women can both be nurses and doctors so maybe take this moment to create awareness among your students in the classroom. Of course housewives are female as well but you might want to introduce the word house husband to make it clear that it is not necessarily the woman who stays at home.

This printable, downloadable handout is best suited for at Elementary (A1) and Pre-intermediate (A2) level. It is valuable for revising Subject and verb agreement and Questions: WH questions (open-ended questions) in English, and is useful for strengthening your class' Listening skills. It centers around the theme of Jobs, work and Learning languages.

You won't find endless grammar or reading comprehension worksheets in my uploads as I think many students around the world are already getting an overload of those.
