adjectives to describe feelings


With this lesson plan, students watch a funny video about a girl who feels different emotions and learn adjectives to describe feelings. Students also get plenty of opportunities to speak about how they feel in different situations. 

A2 / Pre‐Intermediate60 minStandard LessonPremium Plan


The lesson starts with a warm-up activity in which students brainstorm adjectives to describe feelings. They also say in what situations they feel this way. Then, students look at five emotions (e.g. anger, disgust, joy) and come up with possible adjectives for them. After that, they watch the video about a girl who feels different emotions. The video in this lesson is split into several parts so that students can say what makes her have the feeling and predict how she is going to react in each of the five situations. After the video, students say how they feel when they find themselves in the situations presented in the video (e.g. see a spider, spill a drink), and discuss the video itself.


In the second part of the worksheet, students learn more adjectives to describe feelings and emotions (e.g. annoyed, bored, calm) by matching them to different situations. Then, they read short descriptions of eight situations, choose different emotions for each and say why somebody might have them in each of the situations. After that, they play a game in which they pick cards, read a situation and say how they feel when it happens to them. These two tasks give them the opportunity to practise the new vocabulary. The final task of this lesson plan is optional. Students read ten tongue twisters using a different emotion each time. This way, they practise pronunciation but also revise the vocabulary related to feelings and emotions and have some fun
