FREE Medicine and Health Worksheets

Wouldn’t it be awful to get sick in a foreign country and not be able to communicate with the doctor or hospital staff? Learning English will not help your learners in every country but it will give them another skill that could come in very handy in this type of scenario. Teachers have submitted 200 worksheets on this topic and more are added on a regular basis. This one-page medicine worksheet includes some common vocabulary learners can use at the doctor’s office as well as several useful practice exercises. The comprehensive teacher’s notes are included and make using this activity in your ESL classroom simple. If the target structures in the textbook you are using are different from the ones included on this sheet, simply use this as inspiration for your own worksheet and then upload it for other busy teachers.
Medicine and health is a great ESL topic that will come up several times. Beginners will usually learn body parts very early on while intermediate students may talk about medicine and doctors when practicing giving advice. Advanced learners could benefit from talking about the health care system in their country. This is also a very practical topic as students will be much better off if they can explain their symptoms when they get sick while traveling. Completing a role play exercise will give them the practice they need to do this effectively.
