This Intermediate ESL lesson starts with a paragraph about different feelings in which the student identifies adjectives ending in -ed and -ing (annoyed, interested, frustrating, etc.).
Grammar: adjectives ending in -ed and -ing
The rules of use of these adjectives are explained and exemplified.
The student then learns meanings of new adjectives through a matching exercise (humiliating, irritated, captivating, etc.). Next, they put them in the correct categories – describing a feeling/emotion or describing someone/something.
The student practices using these adjectives by completing a text with correct adjective forms.
In another exercise, the student’s task is to rephrase sentences by changing -ing forms to -ed forms. They also find and fix mistakes in sentences.
-ED adjectives and prepositions
The student completes sentences by inserting IN or BY.

Video: Express your feelings!
