ESL English Lesson: Autumn
David Robinson

Today, let’s talk about autumn. What exactly is autumn? It is a season that follows summer and is before winter. Autumn starts in Britain on the 23rd September. It is on this day that daylight and night are the same length of time. The nights now get longer and the days shorter.

In America autumn is known as Fall. The word ‘Fall’, which means ‘fall of the leaf’, or ‘fall of the year’, is actually an old 16th century English word. It was used in North America by English emigrants. While Fall became a commonly used word in the USA, in England it became obsolete.

Students quiz each other in pairs: 1) What happens on the 23rd September? 2) What is autumn? 3) What is the American word for autumn? 4) What is a pumpkin? 5) What is a squirrel and a dormouse?
