    I think that this video reflects a sad reality that is lived around the world today. Excellent teaching

    Hi Kieran,

    Just to let you know that we’ve shortlisted this blog post for this month’s TeachingEnglish blog award and I’ll be putting up a post about it on Sunday’s TeachingEnglish Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/TeachingEnglish.BritishCouncil, if you’d like to check there for comments.

    Best,
    Ann

    1. Hi Ann,

  4. Hello Kieran,
    OK… I’m in tears. I loved the film! Thanks very much for posting it. I will try to use it when I teach future tenses, which will be soon, I hope!

    Really nice lesson, my students loved it!

    An interesting follow-up to the question “What’s the film’s message?” is to show some comments from the youtube video (I copied some and pasted them to an IWB ahead of time to avoid inappropriate language). Some of the comments were similar to what students had said, and others took the discussion off in very different and interesting directions. With more time it would’ve been nice to get students adding their own comments too.

    1. Hi Josh,
      Great to know your students enjoyed the lesson so much.
      The YouTube comments activity is a great follow-up.
      All the best,
      Kieran
