Activity 83- Describe the Scene

Level: Intermediate/Advanced
Skill: Speaking
Grammar point: Simple Past
Material needed: pre-selected (Youtube) video snippets 

Pair up students and explain that one of them is going to watch a video containing a short scene with a lot of action. The student who is watching the video should narrate (with as many details as possible)  the scene using the Simple Past. Then, students swap roles and do it again but with a different video. As a wrap up, invite volunteers to narrate the video for the whole class again and take advantage of the activity to discuss a little bit about:
-fluency skills
-vocabulary range
-rate of speech
