School, university and education are great topics for ESL students because they spend a lot of time in classrooms and should be able to discuss these topics. There are now
in this section with the majority being back to school activities or exercises about the classroom.
This is a fun activity
for pre-intermediate learners. It is a little text heavy but you can adapt it to better suit your needs. As suggested in the worksheet description, this is a great introduction to talking about the rules at your own school. For more worksheets and activity ideas, take a look at the other worksheets in this section. There are also several back to school articles that can help you prepare for the new school year.
Since school plays an important role in their everyday lives, students should be introduced to related vocabulary early on and be given the chance to talk about this topic from time to time.
The majority of activities currently posted are for lower level learners but your advanced students and adults will certainly have some opinions about the education system in their country. Some topics of discussion might include the cost of university, public versus private school, and the quality of education children receive. Students may also find it useful to talk about whether or not students today receive too much homework or too many vacations. These topics will certainly lead to a lively debate.
