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?

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).

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!
