VOCABULARY LESSON 1: Emotions

HOW D O YO U FE EL ?
LESSON DESCRIPTION: This lesson allows the student to learn different emotions that will
convey how they feel. Various emotions will be tackled and for each emotion cited,
a specific example is given to allow the student to understand the lesson better.

GOAL: To hear ESL students describe their feelings using exact words that convey
exactly how they feel. Instead of saying, “I’m okay,” or “I’m happy,” the students
should be able to say, for example, “I’m enthusiastic about learning to speak a
foreign language.”

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Expressing emotions is important for effective conversation. A student


who has no language facility to describe his or her feelings may find it
difficult to relate to his teachers, friends, or fellow students.
