Coronavirus 2020

Vocabulary and language for epidemics

I have been teaching the English language to medical technology students for many years so I have accumulated a lot of medical sciences related materials. In particular, I have a good library of images relating to medical topics.  I realized that it would be quite easy to create a worksheet for the coronavirus.

The news around the recent coronavirus includes a lot of vocabulary commonly used in discussions of epidemics. This is a good teaching topic for students studying in the fields of health and the medical sciences. Of course, it is such an important public health topic that it’s good for all students.
