Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. Good morning, everyone. Today we are going to talk about SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE WATCHED OR WITNESSED.
Before we begin, I’d like to ask you some questions.
You can refer to the sample answer by watching the following video.
Without looking at the video script, please complete some missing words.
Yes, I have, but I can’t ___________ the whole story. It’s about a poor boy who became successful after more than 15 years lived under a dirty bridge. He ___________ several accidents because of it. He lived in poverty with his parents, so he never went to a hospital despite severe injury. Although they were poor, they never committed a ___________. They never depended on others’ help too.
However, his life ___________ when the boy discovered something valuable near the bridge.
No, I haven’t, but I can tell you a true story about my ___________. At first, she was a broke woman, however, after her business at the ___________ company paid off, she turned over a new leaf. Unfortunately, the more profits she made, the greater ___________ she had. As a result, she got divorced and her husband took their two small kids with him. She was rich, but she lived alone in a luxurious ___________.
Please complete the blanks. Do you have the same answers with a classmate next to you? Compare your answers with your partner and then watch the video to confirm by watching the following video:
1. I can’t recall the whole story, but I can still remember the most ___________ segment in the true story.
2. Some people ___________ from poverty and famine, but they can change their life if they keep trying and always pray to the God.
3. Family is more ___________ than simply becoming a rich entrepreneur.
4. I have seen an ___________, but I was not ready to become a witness because I didn’t remember all the facts.
5. I need to read the ___________ thoroughly to analyse that true story.
6. A true story adapted from a movie is unappealing to me because it does not ___________ the plots in depth.
Interview a friend with the following questions:
After finishing your interview, watch the sample interview and complete the missing blanks without looking at the video script. However, you may read some parts of the video script only when you find difficulties:
Life in movies is certainly different from real life. In real life, there is no script
and you will _____________ your own story day by day. Life is full of ups and downs,
twists and turns. But they have a similarity. For _____________ , both of them can inspire us to become a successful person.
In my view, men like action movies with shocking and _____________ scenes like the Raid, a movie starred by Iko Uwais. Besides enjoying watching violence, they also like to watch something _____________ and futuristic like most of sci-fi movies.
I am sure that women prefer romantic movies or comedies with _____________ messages. They want to see something romantic and fun, but what they watch have to be related to life in a _____________ . I think that is why soap opera is one of their _____________ genres.
I’m pretty sure that most avid readers are left disappointed when books are adapted into movies. The _____________ is because the movies lack of persuasion and significant details. On the _____________ , original books are always more in-depth with consecutive plot line, which makes them more fulfilling and convincing.
Of course, I understand that movies focus more on visual and sound effects that they fail to _____________ the true message of the story. With a book, you can read chapter by chapter in detail about a story. However, a movie is normally _____________ to its viewing time which lasts only less than two hours. Therefore, the story I find an adapted version is unappealing.
Switch the role and make an interview again, but you can adjust or add the questions.
As you have finished making an interview, make a report of the interview result. Make some notes to prepare, and below are the examples. Watch a sample of reporting the result of an interview, when necessary, by clicking the following video.
When you are ready to make a report about your interview with a partner, please present your report orally in front of the classroom.
Watch a video clip and discuss the questions that follow. Neither look at the video script nor read the sample answers. However, you may replay or pause the video. You can also watch some vocabulary practices in this link when you need it.
Compare your answers in groups. Check your answers by completing some missing words. You can turn to complete sample answers only when you think it is too difficult.
