Worksheet Focus: Travel English

Do you have students who have requested (or just need) some travel English practice?

Judging by the requests we receive, your students might need practice in dealing with passport control, checking into a hotel, ordering food in a restaurant and buying souvenirs.

One of the most frustrating parts of being in a new city is the feeling of being lost! You can help alleviate this with some practice of asking for directions.

When your students are back from their trips, vacations are a great way to practice the Past Simple. They're ideal for building confidence with wh- questions and also for reinforcing the most common collocations - taking photographs, trying new food etc.

Handouts Online has all of this covered! Head over to our extensive Travel English worksheet collection to find ready-to-print lesson plans for your next class! You can also enter some keywords (e.g. ordering in a restaurant) into our quick lookup box. Try it today!

New Worksheets & Updates - Released November 19th 2015

'Can you tell me about Thanksgiving?' is a new seasonal worksheet.

How well can your students talk about holidays and festivals? It doesn't matter if you (or your students) don't know a great deal about Thanksgiving. We've designed the worksheet so that it will cover lots of different festivals.

Following the lead-in, there is a conversation about Thanksgiving with gap fill exercises and true/false comprehension questions.

The worksheet continues with substitution speaking exercises looking at other festivals and holidays around the world - Bonfire Night, Independence Day and Coming of Age Day.

The lesson rounds off with the opportunity for your students to personalise the language and talk about a festival or holiday they know about.

'I've never driven before!' is a fantastic way to help your students to become more confident with the Present Perfect!

This worksheet looks at the expression I've never (done something) before for talking about an experience that they are about to have for the first time.

There's a conversation about driving lessons (taking one for the first time) with collocation, comprehension and grammar-practice exercises.

The lesson rounds off with discussion questions.

This worksheet is written for lower-intermediate level classes.

Handouts Online has lots of Present Perfect Worksheets. Just head to our Present Perfect page to see them all!

'Idioms Using Give' is a great way to help your students sound more natural in their speech.

The expressions covered include:

  • give (something) a miss
  • give (someone) a blank stare
  • give someone a hard time
  • give something a whirl
  • give someone the shivers

There is a lead-in question, followed by gap-fill exercises. Your students need to guess the meaning of the idioms and then rewrite sentences using the new expressions.

The worksheet rounds off with discussion questions, so that your students can use (and personalise) the language.

This worksheet is written for intermediate levels and above.
