FREE Everyday/Social English Worksheets

In this section you will find 314 worksheets related to everyday, social English. One such worksheet has a very specific theme. It was created to help students interact with employees at the post office. There are several different activities including organizing a dialogue and filling in blanks. Students who complete this activity will be able to easily mail postcards home from English speaking countries. This is a good example of how English can be used in real life situations and will help students see the practical uses of learning English. There are many other worksheets available so if you are not interested in talking about the post office right now, think about using a different activity for your class.
Everyday English is a really important but often overlooked ESL topic. Since everyday casual conversation English is what students will most likely have the opportunity to use outside of class, try to make it the focus of some of your lessons or incorporate it into your lesson plans. Even just five to ten minutes a day will give students the chance to interact with you and other students in normal ways rather than repeating lists of vocabulary words and specific sentence structures. Being able to communicate in English during casual conversations is the goal of many students so make it a priority to help them attain that level of fluency.
