It's been a while since I posted a song-based activity, so here's one for one of my favourite songs this year.
Activity A (Pre-listening)Play just the second chorus - from 2.58 to 3.51 in the video embedded above.
Activity B (Listening)Play the whole song (from 0.42). Students listen and tick the chunks they hear. Allow 1 min to compare the answers in pairs before taking feedback. The answer key can be found in the Teacher's Notes below.
Activity C (Post-listening)Encourage discussion about the meaning of the song. Most of it, of course, is open to interpretation; however, some possible answers are suggested in the Teacher's Notes.
Activity D (Language focus)This can be assigned as homework and done using netspeak.org. See how this online tool can be used to teach common lexical chunks HERE
Activity E is adapted from LeanEnglish website, which also has a brief explanation of the rules.
Let me know how it goes. For other song activities, click HERE
