Music Video Lesson - 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen'

Average: 3.6 (12 votes)

The Sound of Music was my favourite film as a child! This song is about two young teenagers that are starting to fall in love. The man (Rolf) is telling the woman (Liesl) that she needs protecting because she is young.

This song is full of adjectives that describe people's personality. Listen to the song and then try and put the correct adjective in each gap.

What was your favourite film when you were a child?

Perk: Advantage or extra benefit.

Many of our students fly for hours, across the world, to come and study with us! Do you ever wish you could enjoy your flight in first class bliss? I know I certainly do. Apparently, first class flights will soon be even better than ever.

What couldn't you live without?

Average: 3.3 (22 votes)

The things I couldn't live without fall into two categories, material and emotional.

I couldn't live without my family and friends; I couldn't live without happiness; I couldn't live without dance etc.

There are also some material things that I feel I couldn't live without, though I'm sure if I had to then I would cope!

Read through my material must-haves and then answer the true or false questions below. Make sure you tell us five of your material must-haves too!

Spelling Practice

Lots of you wrote back to me after the last spelling lesson, requesting another one. Here it is!

This one is a bit more difficult (I frequently make mistakes with the second one).

Look at the orange word in each sentence and see if you can spell it correctly.

Good luck!

Before you read the lyrics and listen to this song, I want you to look at the vocabulary below. The song is about a relationship. Answer the following questions just by looking at the words:

1. Is the relationship good or bad?

2. Do you think the two people are still together?

3. Can you make a story about this relationship using these words?

When you have answered those questions, listen to the song and put the words in the correct gaps. Let us know what you think!

I Me My

Average: 3.6 (30 votes)

Sometimes, it's the small and most used words in English that students make the most mistakes with, so it can be good to remind yourself of when to use them.

This lesson focuses on 'I, my and me'. In each sentence you need one of these words to complete the gap.

Please tell us how you get on? Also let me know if there are any other 'small' words that you sometimes get confused with.

Good luck!
