I use this in my ESOL Functional Maths classes. I know there are already excellent measures / postal charges resources on Skillsworkshop, but I wanted to do a matching type exercise, which ESOL students are very familiar with.

Working in groups of 2 or 3 it promotes discussion and language development. The money amounts and phrases are cut into slips. Each group has the cards with charges (UK & abroad) and a set of parcel/letter descriptions.Together they must use the given information to match the phrases with the correct amount of money.
