Unit 4 – Places Around English Lesson


Unit 4: Places Around


  • This lesson will teach ESL students how to talk about places in the city. They will also learn to associate places around to people working in them and the actions people perform in different places.
  • This English lesson will teach places vocabulary and action verbs related to things we do in different locations and the people who work there.
  • By association, this is a good lesson for reviewing and reinforcing jobs vocabulary.
  • The lesson focuses on nouns related to jobs and places in the city. It, therefore, focuses on using the verb 'to work' in the present tense with emphasis on the third-person singular.
