A Beggar’s Life

a Talking Points lesson for English reading, speaking, vocabulary and writing

This is part of the Talking Points 3 lesson series for Intermediate to Advanced students.

There are homeless people in every city of the world. They often have to beg to get food to eat.
But some are not real beggars...

This lesson plan begins with a story about a professional beggar – a man who begs for a living, but has a nice home to live in and a car.

Why does he live this kind of life?

The lesson also examines what kind of lives real beggars have and what we can do to help them.

Your students will find this topic highly engaging and all the exercises will be great fun for them. It should definitely create much debate and talking time in your English or ESL class.

The lesson comes complete with:

  • Reading Exercise

  • Reading Comprehension Questions

  • Essential Vocabulary

  • Discussion Questions

  • A Beggar’s Life: an exercise that looks at the dangers of being homeless

  • Debate

  • Role Play

  • Writing Exercise

Start the class with the three opening questions and then do the reading.

Follow that with the reading comprehension questions.

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.

After that, you can do all the other exercises in whatever order you wish.

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