Facebook: speaking and listening activity

Here’s a good way to integrate tech into your lessons and keep it relevant to your students’ interests.

I’ve planned this activity around the great video “What’s On Your Mind”.

The Task

You start with the Before you watch section and work with some Facebook related vocabulary.

Then it’s time to watch the video (preferably twice) and fill in the table comparing the man’s Facebook posts with reality.

Finally, there is time for some Q&A about our Facebook habits.

Personal Experience

So far, I haven’t met a student who wouldn’t be impressed with the video. Depending on the level, the students were able to engage in shorter or longer discussions based solely on the video. With lower levels filling in the table worked well as a basic revision of Present Simple and verb+s.
