Addictions - a Talking Points lesson for English reading & speaking

Addictions – a Talking Points lesson for English reading & speaking

This is part of the Talking Points lesson series.

The ideas behind addiction—and addiction theory—are not well-known in most countries. Addicts are often seen as evil and nothing else, rarely there is any sympathy.

Some of the themes here you may not be allowed to discuss in certain countries—drugs, gambling.

And of course, most of the themes here may be better suited to adults. But I leave all of that to your discretion.

But this subject is very engaging and should definitely create much debate in your English or ESL class.

The lesson comes complete with:

  • a 500-word article
  • a table of essential vocabulary
  • a big list of questions for discussion

Start the class with the three opening questions and then do the reading. Then you can go through all the vocabulary – or set it as homework for the students to do later.

Then there is a big list of questions that are designed to get your students talking.

It comes in easy to use PDF format, ideal for printing for your needs. Use it again and again for your English/ESL classes.
