Product Description
This dynamic activity for 16+ ESL students integrates a wide array of skills utilizing the popular TED talk by Peter Van Uhm of the Netherlands entitled "Why I Chose the Gun".

Students first build knowledge of and practice using preposition collocations such as "interested in", "excited about" and "object to". Then, they watch the TED talk, divided into 4-minute segments, discussing the content and using the target grammar along the way. Finally, they choose between two questions to write a short in-class essay designed to combine the video content with the target grammar.

This activity has never failed to stimulate excellent conversation and skill-building!
