This celebrity worksheet
, for example, contains the biographies of Prince William and Kate Middleton who fascinated people around the world as they prepared for their elaborate wedding. Created with intermediate learners in mind, there are no activities included but since the reading material has already been created, this is a good start on a lesson about this famous young couple. If you are not interested in this topic, there are other worksheets available too.
Since everyone has a favorite celebrity, try to include them in class from time to time. When teaching descriptive words, you can describe famous celebrities and let students guess who you are talking about. You can also give students secret celebrity identities that their partners have to guess based on the answers of yes or no questions. Description lessons are just one opportunity that you can use to talk about celebrities but there are many other times you might want to use them too. It is important to use age appropriate people so that students are sure to know who they are. Using celebrities that students have never heard of defeats the purpose. This is an opportunity to get students more interested in lesson material so go ahead and find out who they are interested in.
