Newspapers in the UK according to BBC Yes, Prime Minister

Aim: students learn about the stereotypical readers of UK newspapers and practice present passive sentences by repetition of the sentence structure: " x is read by y".

Level: although the  speed language used in the video is quite fast, I have prepared some pre-watching tasks that would allow intermediate students (or higher) to carry out this task.

Prodedure: students carry out the pre-viewing tasks and then watch the video to correct their predictions.

  • Video (1 minute 49 seconds), which you can watch on-line below or download from the site below
  • Script and teacher's help.
  • Student's pre-watching tasks.

Thanks to my colleagues at the International Awareness class we took Norwich in 2012 for  showing me this video and providing me with the link to the newspaper front-page site.
