What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
Abbreviations Medical - September 01, 2014Lesson Collection #5 - Lesson 12e
As the title suggests, all of these abbreviations are used in the field of medicine. Students may be familiar with many of them, but do they know the actual words used to create the abbreviation.
This lesson is not only fun, it's really practical. Students will learn the meanings of commonly recognized medical abbreviations such as MRI, ICU, HIV, BMI and CAT.
The worksheets are divided into four categories:
Hospital Terms and
In pairs, groups or as a whole class, students try to identify the real English words which compromise very common abbreviations. Most students may know the abbreviation: ICU. But do they know the letters stand for Intensive Care Unit?
For a similar style lesson, see:
Abbreviations 1 (Lesson 12a above)
Abbreviations 2 (Lesson 12b above)
Abbreviations 3 (Lesson 12c above) -and-
Business Abbreviations (Lesson 12d above).
I love your material and use it often. Your material is the best on the web and a great value. I hope to see more material in the near future.
Once again thanks,
My life as an English teacher changed dramatically when I purchased all of the great lessons from EFL4U.com. I use them constantly! My students always light up when I bring one to class. Truly fab. Fun, creative, educational.
I’d like to thank you for the wonderful worksheets; they are very useful, time-saving as well as entertaining, especially for students who don’t want
to learn English.
I’m very impressed with the amount of work you have invested in these excellent lesson worksheets. Your efforts have resulted in some very fine material which my students enjoy. Thanks!
