About Our Describing Things Worksheets
The ability to describe something is an important aspect of English language learning so there are 256 'describing things' worksheets available to help students develop this skill. A student that is adept at providing descriptions will have the ability to carry on a conversation even without knowing the precise vocabulary words he or she wants to use. An example of this might be if a student is talking about cleaning out the attic but has forgotten or never learned the word attic. The student can describe a typical attic and explain its location within the house and still be able to clearly convey his or her meaning. A fun group activity that helps students practice this is posted here. On his or her turn, a student must choose a card and try to get group members to say the word on the card without saying the word and three other related words. This is a challenging and fun activity for intermediate students. You should feel free to edit or add cards and even change the rules of the game to suit your class.
