Are your English/ESL students struggling with structural English grammar such as use of auxiliary verbs or prepositions? Are you discussing health issues in your English class?
Then download this powerful multimedia activity. In this exercise which integrates vocabulary, speaking, grammar, and writing, students will start by discussing and learning key vocabulary related to illness and hospital visits. Then, they will watch a short video observing the thoughts - captioned in informal, shorthand English - of various people in a hospital environment. They will then rewrite these phrases into complete sentences in order to practice use of structural grammar (auxiliary verbs, prepositions, articles, etc.). Lastly, they will write a journal entry from the perspective of one person from the video.
Trigger warning: The video takes place in a hospital and deals with some heavy health scenarios including infertility, cancer, and loss of loved ones. Be conscious of your student's sensitivities.
