Goat for sale. Past tense practice

Aim: students use past sentences to guess what happened according to the sounds they have previously heard.

Level: students need to know how to use basic verbs in the past simple/past continuous.

Materials: provided video. This video is the Doritos commercial for the  2013 SuperBowl


A)Students listen to the Doritos  video sound but can't see the images. You may minimize the image or have students face away from the computer screen.

B) Students tell each other what they imagened as they were listening to the video.

C) Option one: students compare their guesses with the real video, which they watch with image and sound.
Option two: students work in pairs. One sees the video and tells the other what happened.

Thanks to Mr. Muir, speaker at the Barcelona  2015 MacMillan Teachers' Day for this idea.
