ESL Materials for Talking About Work and Salary

Merry Christmas! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful festive period and are looking forward to a fantastic 2018.

Today I taught a lesson about work and salary. In the class, I used the following materials as a lead-in and to spark a discussion.

First, I began by showing a list of professions. Of course, your students should know these by now. I’ve shared a useful PPT before that specifically relates to IELTS, but this stuff today is more general.

I have my students rank the jobs from most to least well-paid, and then show them the actual list for comparison.

Later in the lesson, I get my students to discuss whether celebrities really deserve to have so much money. I use this document to spark interest:
