It seems fitting that I continue past blogging performance with another lesson based post, but rather than post another authentic listening lesson, I would prefer to focus on authentic video. The authentic video is related to a tour – which is rather educational itself – of the University of Oxford. There are various gist and more detailed activities which revolve around the video itself with a final memorisation game. A lovely supplementary lesson idea, as mentioned by a wonderful colleague, Peter Clements (ELT Planning) – who I might add is rather new to blogging but has some wonderful lesson ideas and I would highly recommend you reading his blog – suggested a tour of our school, whereby students prepare their own video tours of the school – which could be replicated by any other institution and their very own school.
Anyhow, I do hope you enjoy this lesson idea and you are able to incorporate it into your very own teaching. All materials are available as part of a PDF download and the video of the tour of the University is embedded below. As ever, it would be wonderful to hear how you got on with this lesson.
