Love is Blind - level 3 Hi Lang I’m going to write to you in English from now on because we both need the practice. Thanks for your email. I’m sorry I didn’t write back to you before now, but I started school the day after we arrived in Boston and I’ve been too busy. I hate it here. I can’t understand a word that anyone says to me. I miss Shanghai so much and I miss playing in the band with you. Hey, I’ve got to stop now. Please write back soon. Deshi PS: I think I’m in love! Deshi turned off his computer and opened his English book. That night, Deshi couldn’t sleep and he was late for school next morning. School didn’t go well that day. Deshi was feeling miserable as he went down the stairs.

Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy – a lesson It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow, and although I don’t normally do anything for it, I thought that this year I would take the opportunity to share one of my favourite poems with my students. 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? What kind of gifts do people normally give for Valentine’s Day? Give each group the word cloud. Show them an onion. Ask the students to close their eyes and put their heads on the desk (but try not to fall asleep!). Ask them to discuss how similar the poem was to their ideas. You can then do some pronunciation/speaking work. They talk about why you pause in those places – it’s because of line/stanza breaks, and also phrases within the lines. They can chose whether to read Valentine, or an anti-Valentine poem. In groups with other students who have chosen the same poem, they practise reading it. Like this:

All of Me by John Legend | Lyrical English In this song John Legend uses opposite meanings to convey how he feels about his wife. It is a very ‘honest’ love song. 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. Materials: PowerPoint slides here , song on YouTube, slide 6 printed off and cut up 1/group , worksheet without explanations 1/pair here and worksheet with explanation 1/pair and cut up here. Level: Upper Intermediate + adults Procedure Warmer– Students discuss love songs. Personalise– Show slide 13. Do you teach IELTS? Do you Like this: Like Loading...
