How did you pick this theme or topic?
Commercials can be fun and get the students interested I think. Also, it’s a big part of culture since we see them every day in magazines, on tv, etc…
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Work in pairs
How did students react?
They reacted ok. It wasn’t very successful because they didn’t have any ideas of commercials they liked or anything so I felt that I talked much more than they did.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Sort of. They had to talk to each other at some point, so they did, but apart from that, they were not very talkative.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Videos on youtube

Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes but I would change things to force them to talk more.
