Adjectives Opposites ( Lesson 1 ) - Off2Class ESL Lesson Plan Make a Copy
Why teaching adjectives works
An adjective is a word that describes a noun and helps provide more meaning. Many ESL students struggle with them and the reason for this is unknown by ESL teachers. Perhaps it is because ESL textbooks focus too much on verba and as a result, students put more emphasis on memorizing them. Alternatively, it could be that adjectives are difficult to pronounce or the fact that English uses adjectives a bit differently than many other languages. There are many reasons students struggle with understanding adjectives. With this, it’s important to start teaching students adjectives early on and consistently throughout their learning journey.
Lesson 1 introduces words that are commonly used when speaking and writing. Students will learn basic adjectives old/new and young/old.
