Emergency Services Functional English and ESOL activities

Worksheets and tasks around the theme of emergencies. Written for ESOL but also suitable for adult literacy and Functionakl English.

The worksheets and tasks include reading for information, preparing and practising an emergency phone call, speaking and writing about an emergency situation. The material is set in an Irish context so some of the vocabulary is specific e.g. ‘garda’ is a police officer and ‘gardai’ is police. The material was created for use in a multilevel ESOL context where tutors have to work with groups of learners who have different second language levels.

Editor’s note
Although written for ESOL and for an Irish audience this huge set of activities includes many suitable activities for Functional English. It is accompanied by highly detailed, very professional teaching notes which form a complete lesson plan. Other activities include a simple bingo game, drawing an emergency escape route, word searches and matching games.
