ESL At A Glance

Hello students! Today we will work with ESL activities. In order to strengthen your knowledge we need to keep practicing. Below I have broken it down into three categories: Verbs, Adjectives and Animals and People. Each section has two more pages to visit to further your knowledge.

 Learning ESL can be broken down into many steps but this page will highlight three specific areas of learning. They are verbs, adjectives, and People and Animals terms. By clicking on each of the three areas listed, it will bring you to a page of pictures showing each term. 

Study each list and make sure you are familiar with each term. There will be games and other ideas to help you along the way.

After reading the list of verbs try your best using the Verb Game. In this game, balloons will float to the top containing verbs among other parts of speech (adjectives, nouns). In order to win, ONLY click the balloons with verbs to make them pop. If you need help there will be a sentence on top of the screen to help give you clues about what words are verbs. You’ll be able to see the results after each round, good luck!

 After reading the list of adjectives try your best using the Adjective Game.  The mini games at this website will help you work with adjectives in a newspaper setting, dealing with the classified section, dating and sporting.  If you need more assistance, make sure to click the How To Play button on the main screen or the Hint button during the actual game.  After going through all the activities test your knowledge by taking the 10 question Quiz. When you complete the answers you will be able to see your score and see the correct answers. 

After reading the list of people and animal terms, check out the Interesting Fact page where you will learn some odd but true facts about animals. Although this page highlights facts mainly about cats and armadillos it also provides us with information about other animals. Once you visit the fact page you can read Animal Sounds. This page displays the sounds of many animals, more importantly it also displays the sounds in multiple languages. In addition to writing the sound for each animal, it also displays the most common names for each animal in literature, for example Kermit as a frog’s name or Lassie for a dog’s name. Another section on the page also displays animal commands and how to say them. For example, to make a horse go faster one would say giddyup.

 Congratulations and completing all of the ESL activities listed above. Feel free to come back whenever you want to refresh your memory!
