Beautiful song! A masterpiece of grunge-rock music performed by Pearl Jam that will allow you to practice the structure “WISH + Simple Past“.

In the pdf file you’ll find a fill-in-the-blanks activity, as well as teacher’s notes providing:

  • info about the band
  • grammar reference
  • guidelines for speaking activity
  • key to exercise

I suggest trying this speaking + listening activity with intermediate or upper-intermediate students.

In the next post we’ll look into the great food for thought this song has to offer.

ON THE PHONE – roleplay

In this downloadable activity, you can find an easy way to practice useful vocabulary that we need when talking on the phone.

It’s a role-playing game, where two students are given a character card, and then have to engage in a conversation, trying to stick to their character, but also reacting to what the other person tells them.

From take-away pizza, to arranging a meeting… the situations are made up, but the fun is real!
