Notes for the teacher 

 

Aim 

The aim of these vocabulary activities is to introduce between ten and twenty 

useful vocabulary items for the level, with an emphasis on checking the meaning 

and using the words and phrases. The students should be able to use the 

language actively once they have completed the tasks. 

 

Each vocabulary worksheet can be used as a lesson in itself. It provides practice 



in speaking, reading and writing as well as introducing vocabulary. However, the 

worksheets are designed to be flexible. The first two exercises can be used as a 

lead-in to a lesson on the topic area, introducing vocabulary before going on to a 

listening or reading from the class coursebook. The final speaking activity can be 

used as a follow up to a lesson on the topic area. The writing task makes a 

natural homework activity. 

 

The tasks are designed to help students match words to meaning, and to use 



and personalise vocabulary. However, it is always a good idea to think about 

which words your students will find difficult. If you have a monolingual class it is 

easy to predict this, and think of check questions to make sure they understand 

the words.

Answers 

The school system in England.  

 

Pre-school education is provided by state or private nursery schools. Children as 



young as two are often left by their parents while they go to work. Children 

usually start primary school when they are five. Then they go on to a state 

secondary school, often called a comprehensive school. In the private sector, 

children often go to a prep school, before going on to public school when they 

are five or six. Many children often leave school at sixteen, after they take their 

GCSE exams, but some stay on to take their A level exams at school or sixth 

form college, before going on to university.  

 



Ask the students to prepare to talk about the school system in their country, and 

their own experience of education. Put them in pairs or threes to discuss. 

 



Ask the students to write about the school system in their country. You could set 



this for homework. 

 

 



These exercises were prepared using the CD ROM from the new 

Macmillan English Dictionary, which was designed to make making vocabulary 

lessons easy for teachers. You can find out more about the dictionary and the 

CD in
