INTRODUCTION
Contents
This video pack consists of Life in Britain, a thirty-minute
teenage lifestyle video, and these Teacher’s Notes. Life in
Britain can be used by students of English from false
beginner/elementary level upwards. It may be used
alongside Sky or any equivalent ELT course at the
appropriate level. The Teacher’s Notes provide videoscripts
and suggested activities for each of the eight episodes in
the video.

Teacher’s Notes
The Teacher’s Notes contain the following activity types:

Before watching
The questions or activities in this section prepare students
for the scene they are about to watch. They might be asked
to review certain elements of the story so far, or to imagine
what is going to happen, or there may be a few questions to
focus their subsequent viewing. The aim is to get the
students thinking about the next scene and to elicit some
key vocabulary.

While watching
This section, which usually consists of questions, provides
activities for students to do while they are watching the
video. The suggested tasks are based upon the assumption
that the students will watch the video several times: the first
time for gist, a second and perhaps a third time for more
detailed comprehension. Depending on the level of the
class, teachers may wish to ask some of the comprehension
questions in the students’ first language (L1) rather than in
English.

After watching
After the students have watched a scene or episode, they
will often be invited to make comments. In this section there
are also ideas for further exploitation and consolidation of
language.
6

Test your memory
This is a light-hearted activity which focuses on the students’
ability to remember detail. As they work through the video,
they will find that they gradually become more and more
observant.

Background information
Brief cultural background information and interesting facts
are contained in these boxes.

Videoscripts
Videoscripts are included at the end of each episode and
contain the text of all the scenes for that episode. For
suggestions on how to exploit the videoscripts, see below.

Video viewing techniques
Watch and listen (sound on)
Students watch and listen at the same time to gain an
overall idea of what is happening.

Watch without sound (sound off)
Students focus on gestures, movements, surrounding
environment and other visual information. Using this and
their knowledge of the world, they can guess what is
happening.

Listen without watching (eyes shut or TV screen
covered)
Students close their eyes and listen to the conversation and
sound effects. They then try to guess what is happening
and what the visual setting might be like.

Timing of questions
Teachers may want to ask comprehension questions before
or after showing students a scene. Remember that
questions asked beforehand give students a focus for their
viewing, whilst those asked afterwards test students’
memory of what they have seen.

7


Using the videoscripts
Reference for teachers
In these Teacher’s Notes, a videoscript follows each episode
and its related activities. The script can be used to prepare
students for the key vocabulary and structures in the coming
episode, or to help review the language after viewing.

Cloze texts

EPISODE 1
Family and friends

0:00 – 03:30

Key Language
Grammar

To check if the students have remembered the new
vocabulary, enlarge the relevant part of the videoscript and
copy it onto a page with some words in the conversation
gapped or blanked out. The students then work together or
individually to complete the text.

to be singular: am/is/are
Subject pronoun: I/you/he/she
Possessive adjectives: my/your/his/her
to be questions: What’s? Who’s? Are you …? Is (this)...?
Demonstrative pronoun: this
Possessive ’s

Jigsaw activity

Vocabulary

With a small class this can be done as whole class activity
using one scene from the videoscript. With a large class it
can be done as a group activity using several scenes.
Enlarge and copy the relevant scene (or scenes), then cut up
the conversation, removing the names of the speakers. Give
each student (in the class or group) a piece of paper with a
sentence on it. As a class or in groups, the students must
reconstruct the conversation and put the name of the
speaker beside each sentence.

Titles: Mr (Walker)
Greetings: Hi! Hello. Bye! See you later! Nice to meet
you.
Family: mum, mother, dad, gran, sister
Numbers: 1 – 50

Start/End the dialogue
Once the students have finished watching a scene, give
them either the first or the second half of the conversation.
They must then try to reconstruct the missing half.

Roleplay
Ask the students to act out part or all of one scene from
memory. This gives them an extra opportunity to work with
the language and gain extra pronunciation practice too.

Expressions
Wow!
Cool!
Thanks!
Look!
Here’s (my mum).
Here she is!
Oh no!
Look at (this)!
Come on!
Say cheese!
Cheese!
