ESL Video – Day of Light

Here is another video discussion lesson for ESL classes. This lesson follows the same format I described for another video lesson. The video is a a prompt to help students improve listening, thinking, speaking and fluency skills.

Here is the link for this video lesson. It is hosted by Vimeo. The video is called Day of Light by Love Light and Melody.

One of the keys to this conversation activity is that Group A students (the people who watch the video for the first time) must answer the questions directly but should not provide too much information. This forces Group B students to ask proper questions.

ESL Video Lesson

This video is about the day around a landfill in Nicaragua. This pair work activity works like this.

  1. Group B leaves classroom. Group A stays in class to watch video.
  2. Group A job is to understand video.
  3. Group B returns. They ask questions using the 5 Ws+H: who, what, where, when, why, how. Their job is to get the main idea.
  4. Conclude by watching again.
