This is a speaking activity based on a video. I love this activity because it’s the kind of activity that creates a nice atmosphere in class and evokes positive feelings.

LEVEL: intermediate and above

MATERIALS: the video below

TIME: 25′ approx

PROCEDURE:

STEP 1

Play the beginning and stop at 00:18. Ask where they think this people are and what they think it’s going to happen.

STEP 2

Then I play some more seconds till they read “say something nice”. Ask them to guess who is going to say something nice, and what “something nice” means.

STEP 3

Watch the video until the end. Discuss with your students if they liked it or not, if they think these events can make a change and what we could do to make a better world.

STEP 4

Give them a couple of minutes to think what they would say, then ask them to stand up and say their sentence.
