This lesson will introduce learners to the vocabulary of English school facilities. They will encounter the vocabulary in a short reading text and focus on meaning prior to reading for detail. The lesson will conclude with the learners using the vocabulary to discuss a language school of their own design in order to practise vocabulary.

You’ll also find a simple procedure at the end of this lesson plan to help you create a similar lesson for a text to suit your learners.
