insurance, to be entitled to, to claim, contribution, retirement, mobility allowance, income, employer, fee, provision, Medicare,
Medicaid, BUPA, GDP, NHS, GPs; the+adjectives: the widowed, the unemployed, the elderly, the young and others. This activity helps the
teacher to involve every student into learning process and to warm up them for the next activities.
