People, jobs and occupations vocabulary games

, spelling games, and question and answer exercises for students to learn online. Practice asking about jobs, work and occupations; spelling, vocabulary, speaking, questions and answers, as well a grammar with these great games and activities.



This game focuses on jobs and occupations with four main sections. There is a people around town vocabulary practice section and a jobs and occupations spelling section. Then, there are color games for conversation practice and games for listening practice. The question and answer games and grammar games are associated with the ESL Young Learners Curriculum - Unit 2.

The questions and answers for this game are as follows.

  • A: What's he?
  • B: He's a barber.
  • A: Is she a barber?
  • B: Yes, she is./No, she's not.
  • A: Is he a barber?
  • B: No. He's not a barber. He's a cook.

Other notes:

  • The spelling game will accept the vocabulary word as is, "barber" or with an article, "a barber".  There are some other variations the game will accept, like fire fighter-fireman, mailman-mail carrier, barber-hair stylist, police officer-policeman.
  • In the grammar section there is emphasis placed on learning the difference between "he" and "she".  So, the game uses a very simple question format of "What's he?".  Although the grammar games will accept you typing, "What does he do?" and "What's his job?".
