Jigsaw

Drag and drop the words into the correct spaces in the transcript. The gaps are numbered so that students can write down their answers and you can use it as a front-of-class exercise.

You can do this exercise multiple times, with different words removed on each occasion. Use the timer if you want to add a bit of extra pressure!

Video Vocab

Here, students can practise and test themselves on important vocabulary which has been specially selected from the video. We recommend that they try the Gap-fill afterwards, to practise the words in their inflected forms.

Gap-fill

Here, students are asked to type the correct words into gaps in the transcript. The vocabulary tested has been specially selected and students can practise it in the Video Vocab section before trying this exercise.

Comprehension

This multiple choice exercise is designed to test students' understanding of the video. Each comprehension is written with the video's difficulty rating in mind.

Transcript

This is a full transcription of everything said in the video. Your students will not be able to see this in their account unless you allow them to. The Primary Account Holder for your school can change this setting by going to My Account > Settings. If you're not sure who that is, just let us know.

Print Worksheet

This converts the exercises you see here into a worksheet that you can edit, adapt and print. Students can then do the exercises whilst you project the video at the front of class.

So, I grew up in [Maryland], which is on the border of [Washington], [DC], which is the capital of the US. Umm I really like to go there to see the [Smithsonian] museums, which are free to the public and document American history in a variety of ways. I like to go to [Baltimore], where my older sister lives on the [Inner Harbor], which is off of the [Chesapeake Bay]. And they have a science museum and a national aquarium that I like to go to. I like to go in my hometown, to something called a farm museum which documents umm what life was like, particularly in the eighteen fifties in my hometown because we've been rural up (un)til very recently, and have a strong agricultural history. And then, my final place is [Annapolis], which is the capital of [Maryland] and I like to go there because there's this gorgeous waterfront. You can take a boat ride, you can watch the fireworks on the fourth of July and I like to go window-shopping in all their cute little shops (laughs).
