Love at First Sight EFL/ESL/ELT Lesson Plan

Love at First Sight EFL/ESL/ELT Lesson Plan | Creativity Autonomy Technology in ELT | Scoop.it

This is a lesson I made last week at extremely short notice but I had been wanting to use the film for a while. It's a really beautiful short film about a romantic situation I think anyone can relate with, especially if they have been young and travelling! It also has a really sweet yet subtle twist in it, that I didn't actually get until the second time of watching! Warning! This lesson will produce a lot of laughs and even more blushing!!!!!!
Level - Intermediate+
Age - Teens -> Adults
