 Are you teaching vocabulary related to clothes? He is a very meaningful way to practice it!

Level: Beginners
Skills: Speaking + writing
Materials: Clothes of all styles such as dresses, bellbottoms, jackets, shorts, coats, skirts of all patterns and colors. It would also be good to bring some personal accessories such as rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, hats and caps. 


  1. The teacher places the clothes on the wall or table. He/she asks students to choose clothes which would fit the following styles:
a)    Hippie
b)    Gypsy
c)    Skater
d)    Surfer
e)    Conservative
f)     Fancy
And so on.
  1. The teacher should have cards with family members and verbs such as like, wear, hate, dislike, go, and put on.  
  2. Then, the teacher places the cards on the board and asks students to come up with conversations, using the Simple Present tense.
E.g.:  Do you always wear baggy pants?
         Yes, I do. I like to wear… every time I… or No, I don’t I sometimes wear…

Does your mother wear jeans and a jacket?
Yes, she does. // No, she doesn’t.
