This lesson helps learners talk about different types of sport.

Rachael Ro

In this lesson, learners will review vocabulary for sports and extend it with the clothes and equipment needed to play various sports, then make a poster about a sport. Then they will learn vocabulary for extreme sports, watch a story about an extreme sport adventure camp, practise the 'would like to' structure and survey their classmates. Finally, they will either watch a story about a school sports day and design a sport, or they will watch a football-related story and write about their favourite team.


To develop and practise (depending on stages chosen):

  • vocabulary: sports, sports clothes and equipment, extreme sports, sports day sports, football vocabulary
  • structure: would like to; could/couldn't, had to/didn't have to
  • integrated skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing
