A running commentary

This is a fun way to practise using the Present Continuous:

First, watch the video and write a list of actions you see in the video.

For example: Chewing, walking, looking, watching, etc.

Next, watch the video again and describe what is happening?

Can all the verbs be used in the continuous form? Watch out, some verbs cannot!

Now, do the same with this next video:

Now that you have had some practice... 
Try describing the video to a friend (who has a higher level of English than you do) but don't let your friend see the video. 

After you have described the video, show it to your friend.

Ask them if your description was accurate or; if they could have done it better than you?

Take it in turns to describe the videos and have fun!

Loves learning to sing...

"Educate the nation with a song and a vision."

Make yourself a promise that you'll eat better food...

Please watch this superb video about food revolution;

1. Name the actors, singers and people you recognise.

2. Listen to the lyrics and summarise the song.

3. How can this video help people to eat better food?  
Well, in my opinion it won't, but it will raise awareness, which in turn will encourage people to make better decisions about the food they eat. 

iFriendly Tip: Learn the lyrics, sing the song. This way you can learn new vocabulary through singing.

Over the next few weeks iFriendly will look at a series of songs and videos to help you learn from songs in English.
