Monica MIRZA's curator insight, April 1, 2013 4:07 AM

The poster above appeals to social networkers' self-mockery and I've completed it with a few questions to have the pupils/students decode it…

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Its author (kalokwong1 - on 9GAG.com, a fun sharing community) has selected a few social media networks to illustrate each of them with a mocking key-sentence.

Some of these networks are worldwide famous, yet others might be less familiar to French pupils/students : that's why I've added a few questions and suggest clues, key-words and links to help pupils/students discover them.

Hope it may be of some use to you  -should it be, thanks for your feedback :-)

Aulde de Barbuat's insight:

Recommended by Cathia Gaïta Kinaci , a French English teacher.

Excellent . The script is worth memorizing and saying. I would advise downloading the video, slowing it down using vlc as a player, have so whose English pronunciation is good rerecording it slower with a rap intonation as a model. Record or film oneself or two by two adressing each other in turn  as in a"battle" and eventually post it on a blog, facebook and/ or Edmodo might be fun for learners.
