Love is Blind - level 1
Hi Lang I’m writing in English to practise. I’m sorry I didn’t answer your email. I started school the day after we arrived in Boston and I’ve got too much work to do. I hate it here. I can’t understand what people are saying. I miss Shanghai and I miss playing in the band with you. Hey, I’ve got to stop. Please write back soon. Deshi PS: I think I’m in love! Deshi turned off the computer and opened his English book, but it was difficult to concentrate on irregular verbs. Deshi couldn’t sleep that night and he was late for school the next morning. School didn’t go well that day. Deshi thought about how unhappy he was as he went down the stairs. Brendan Dunne

Here’s the plan in case you want to do it too. Ask your students what day it is, and whether anything special happens on this day in their country. What do they know about Valentine’s Day in the UK?

I think it reflects real life rather than a fairytale version of a relationship. This provides a good opportunity for students to discuss love songs, identify the opposite meanings and then interpret what the songwriter really means. Students then use what they have learned to talk about their own loved ones.
