This Powerpoint presentation gives useful words and phrases for describing an urban environment. It is intended for intermediate level students, as the words are a bit more advanced than the usual “supermarket,” “post office,” etc., and some of the concepts are slightly abstract.

I have sourced images and definitions from Google which I think illustrate the meaning of the words quite well.

I began my lesson with a discussion on the differences between living in the city and living in the country, and finished by talking about the future of cities. This PPT came in really useful for the vocabulary section in the middle.
