In this post I would like to introduce about 20 new words connected with towns. These words are neccessary if you want to speak about the place where you live or stay.
The vocabulary is for elementary and pre-intermediate students and it covers different basic features which can be found in towns and cities.
This post contains a video with the correct pronunciation and example sentences. Then there is a mind map to help you organise the vocabulary and learn it. In the last part there are several games to give you an opportunity to practise the town vocabulary.
Town vocabulary – video
Watch the video and repeat the words you hear and see. Try to understand the example sentences and later try to repeat them too:
If you feel that you need to practise the words, watch the video several times.
Town vocabulary – mind map
Now you should try to complete the following mind map with all the words from the video. The words are listed in the bottom right corner of the mind map:
Town vocabulary – games
The first game will test your vocabulary knowledge. There are several quizzes and then, if you succeed, you can play a game. The game is called Hot race.
Many of my students feel that listening is the most difficult skill. Therefore, I have prepared the following dictation activity. You will hear several sentences and your task is to write the sentence you hear. If you are successful, you will get a chance to play the game Rock, scissors and paper. (Of course, you can skip the game, if you do not want to play it. Just click on the NEXT button and you will get another dictation.)
