Using Yahoo to learn English
Here is a good place to practice your listening and reading skills is to listen to the Yahoo People of the Web site which has a short video accompanied by an article. If you were teaching you could do;
1 some warm up exercise based on the subject. E.g. Ask your teen students how they could become a millionaire at their age.
2 Then show the video and ask the students to write down as many details as possible.
3 They then work in pairs to share their noes and then write up an short summary of the piece.
4 Finally, they compare their version to the article that goes with the video.
This could be used as a warm up exercise for a debate or discursive essay writing lesson.
