New Discussion Words for Talk a Lot lessons – Zoo

Here are 40 new discussion words on the topic of Zoo. You could use them in a Talk a Lot lesson or as the vocabulary in a Mode 3 lesson using You Are The Course Book method – or however you want to!

I was inspired to create this new topic after a visit to Gdańsk Zoo during the summer. We had a great time and saw all kinds of amazing animals, including giraffes, monkeys, crocodiles (who lay as still as stone, just occasionally flicking open one eye and then tightly closing it again), and of course African and Indian elephants. There’s something quite breathtaking about being in the same physical space as live elephants – even if they were safely behind barriers.

I hope that you will enjoy using this new topic to teach or learn English vocabulary. It can be used with elementary level and above. My pre-intermediate students had problems with words like amphibian, zoologist, and petting zoo. We discussed topics like the purpose of zoos, and whether it is cruel to keep animals in captivity. You can let us know how you got on with this topic by contacting us here.
