Tractor Troubleshooting Vocabulary Speaking Lesson

Students learn extensive mechanical vocabulary - including verbs, nouns and expressions - and practice their writing and speaking skills.


That is a worksheet that took me a lot of preparation! I wanted to give students some significant input to allow them to handle situations in which they would have to talk in English about mechanics.

I may have got a little carried away for the list is quite long. It consists of nouns, verbs and expressions that I took from Rachel Gingell's video "Why won't my tractor start" that you can watch by clicking here:

The list of words is relatively long for two reasons. Firstly because the video is 15 minutes long. She tackles a wide variety of potential issues so the vocabulary range is broad. Secondly, the classes that I teach are very heterogeneous. Levels go from A2 to B2 so I have to widen the range of vocabulary to give weaker students something to hold on to, and stronger students some new input as well. 


Subsequent to the matching vocabulary exercise, exercise 3 is a speaking activity that allows students to put into practice the vocabulary.

This exercise is preceded by a listening exercise on Rachel Gingell's video. You can read the post about exercise 1  and find the worksheet by clicking on the link below:
