Grammar: Simple Past and Past Continuous

The activity this week was a contribution to the blog by Natália Guerreiro. Thanks, Natália! 🙂

In the seventh episode of season one, the friends experience a major blackout — which has, at least in the parts we’ll be watching, the merciful consequence we don’t have to hear Phoebe sing! What the friends were doing at the time the lights went out and what they did while the lights were out is what students will find out in this great activity!

Part 1: Past Continuous

Part 2: Past Simple

Friends – 005 – Past Simple and Past Continuous

Thanks again, Natália! 🙂

Enjoy!

Intonation: Questions

In the 7th episode of the first season of Friends, Chandler’s colleague Shelly makes him a… weird proposal! By exploring this one-minute passage with students, we can get them talking about making a faux pas and, at the same time, discuss the different intonation patterns for questions in English.
