This YouTube activity really gets your students thinking creatively. A short film is played for the students, but they can’t see the scene, they can only hear it. Students guess what happens in the scene before they get to view it to check their deductions. Students are motivated and have lots of fun. This activity can be used to review present simple tenses, vocabulary for sounds, language of deduction and making comparisons.
