Vocabulary about Transport and Travel
Intermediate level


In this lesson, students will learn vocabulary about transport and travel. After this lesson, I assume that they will be able to talk about their travels, how they travel, transportation vehicles etc. The lesson will start by asking them some questions about their travels and vacations. They will learn how to pronounce the words they've learnt,

Main Aims

  • To provide practice of buffet car, train, bus, car, plane, check in, boarding pass etc. in the context of Transport and Travel

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of language used for transport and travel in the context of vocabulary


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

To warm-up, I'll tell them a small talk about my vacation preferences and way to travel. Then I'll have two questions for them. "What kind of vacation do you like?" and "Which transportation do you prefer?" I'll do pair work and let them discuss it with their partner. After they finish working, I'll ask them individually their partner's preferences.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

The students will have an exercise and they'll put the words into the correct column. They'll work individually and while they are working, I'll stick pictures of the words on the board. I will change their partners and form pairs again. They will share their answers after they see the pictures. They have 2 minutes to discuss in pairs. I'll ask them the repeat chorally and then individually. Finally, I'll ask them: "Can you use these words for different transports? if yes; which ones?"

Clarification (4-8 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I'll ask them concept checking questions. For example; for "speed limit" I put a picture of speed limit 40, I would ask "Can you drive with 50 miles an hour?" Just to make sure that they understood, I will try to ask them CCQs more or less for each word.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Here they'll have a matching game. I'll give them fourteen pictures in total. Depending on the number of students, I will divide them into two/three groups. Each group will have pictures and words for each picture. They should match them on their table and the first group who comes, sticks their answer to the board; wins. Meanwhile, when they tack the word on the board, they'll be taught the stressed words.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Here there are twelve questions given. I want them to work in pairs and be careful about stressed words. I'll try to merge people who are from different countries because they'll interact with their friends. First of all, they'll read the questions once, then I'll ask them to interview with their partner and if we have any time left, we'll discuss in the lesson.
