Elevator Music: awareness of others

This video is connected to some of the topics we need to talk about in “tutoría”. I do not know whether tomorrow we’ll have  to cancel the outing due to bad weather but,  in case we cannot have “tutoria”, I want you to watch this video and think about it.

What is the message of the video?message-in-the-bottle_id5074131_size435

What are the people in the elevator thinking?

Can you think of any speech bubbles for the people in the lift?

Think of a title?

The streets of Palma through the eyes of a tourist (2): Listening exercise question race

Basic RGB

Here follows another video by the same tourist. This time I am not going to ask you any questions. You will be the one to watch the video and prepare the questions for your classmates.

1. Watch the video and think of a good question. Of course, the answer must be in the video. Questions do not need to be very difficult.

2. Post the question to the blog.

3. The person who knows the answer posts the answer and a new question.  You keep on doing it until everyone in the class has posted a question.

4. Every student  must make a question and an answer, except the first student who  will only post the first question and student number 30 who will only post the last answer.

5. Remember to number the questions.

Hurry up! the sooner you do it, the easier.
