This EFL lesson is designed around a short film by Meghann Artes and the theme of speed-dating.In the lesson students talk about meeting a partner and dating, watch a short film, and read and discuss speed-dating questions.These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement or marriage.The photos are usually of landscapes, street scenes, etc.
*Side note - if you don't have equal numbers, make sure you choose those students that are up for anything to be on the opposite team.
Each student creates a sentence, and the others need to build on it.
I get some truly crazy stories, but they all stay in the target language! I couldn't find a Spanish version, so I had to adapt an English version.
