This is not the first time I’ve tried to watch all the Friends episodes in order and create activities for the ELT classroom with them! Having been a Friends fan forever, I started a blog with this purpose a few years back (www.friendsintheclassroom.blogspot.com) but unfortunately didn’t go through with it.
Time to try again! 🙂
I could start from season 2 – which is where I stopped last time around – but won’t; I’ll start from scratch. The reason why I’ll do so is that I was a different teacher back then, less experienced, and tended to focus solely on grammar structures. This time around I’ll have a much more… holistic focus, as it were, and I hope to be able to devise activities for lead-ins, warm-ups, to work on phonology, vocabulary, discourse, listening, speaking, writing (!), reading (!!) and also, of course, grammar. I’ll revamp and possibly re-post the activities I created back then, but this is supposed to really be a fresh start.
Finally, I’ll be counting on a little help from my friends, and if there is a Friends-related activity you’ve created over the past decades (yes, going on two now!) and you feel like sharing them with the world, please send them to me and I’ll post them here, crediting you always.
Season 1, episode 1 now on. 235 to go after this one.
