English worksheet


In this lesson students discuss means of transport, talk about car and bike traffic in the place where they live, and learn some vocabulary to talk about transport.

B1 / Intermediate30 minCritical Reading ClubUnlimited Plan

This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.


At the beginning of the lesson, students list the means of transport they have used in the last month and say where they went using them. Then, they look at seven statements about transportation and choose the correct words (e.g. environmentally friendly, convenient, commute). Then, they have a brief discussion as they also decide whether the statements are true for the place where they live. Finally, students discuss the article they read at home and talk about advantages and disadvantages of bikes and cars. They also have to imagine how their lives would change if they stopped using certain means of transport.

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
