46 FREE Telephones Worksheets

FREE Telephones Worksheets

The telephones section is one of the subsections of the modern technology category. There are now 46 worksheets available on this topic for students of every age and ability level. Some talk about SMS language while others are for role-plays or learning about the history of telephones. This phone worksheet will help students learn about SMS English. You might want to change the font to make it a little easier to read and you can add more mini conversations for students to translate too. High school students or students who text often will appreciate this lesson the most while younger students who are not especially familiar with cell phones might benefit more from a model dialogue that focuses on important phrases to use while on the telephone. This is an especially good role-play worksheet that can be used with intermediate students and adapted for adults. The whole lesson plan is included. For other worksheets using telephone related vocabulary, look through the rest of the section. All of the worksheets are free and printable so you can always browse through the site for new teaching material.
