The Influence of New Technologies on the English Language

I’ve always been fascinated by David Crystal, by language, by linguistics, and by new technologies and this activity comprises all these elements. Can I be happier?

The activity is divided into three parts: pre-watching, watching, and follow-up. It involves all four skills and different kinds of interactions among students. I haven’t put it into practice yet, but I’m sure that my students, who are mostly teachers, will love it.

LEVEL: B2 and above

TIME 90-120 minutes

MATERIALS: videos, photocopies (everything linked in the handout)

If you do it, I would enjoy reading the results in the comments section. 🙂
