Lesson overview

In this Advanced ESL lesson, students will learn and practice using vocabulary related to alcoholic beverages. Students will also learn how to use quantifying phrases in the grammar point part of the lesson. 



The student answers introductory questions about their experience with drinking.


Video: How does alcohol cause hangovers?

Prior to watching a video, the student learns new vocabulary by matching it with the correct definitions (dosage, ethanol, colloquially, sedation, off-kilter, etc.).

The student watches the video How does alcohol cause hangovers?, and answers video comprehension questions. They get to use the vocabulary they previously learned in a sentence completion exercise.

The student reads a list of symptoms and checks the ones associated with a hangover (headache, nausea, weakness, etc.). Then, they decide if the statements based on the video are true or false.


Grammar: Quantifiers

The student learns what quantifiers are and how to use them properly (either, neither, each, both, etc.). They put their knowledge into practice by choosing correct quantifiers to finish sentences.

In the wrap-up activity, the student remembers synonyms for the word alcohol used in the video.
