How did you pick this theme or topic?
I wanted to do something fun with them, and 20 questions is a game that allowed them all to speak and learn some new vocab and defend their opinions (why yes and not probably? Etc…).
Also, I wanted them to know which song had won the NRJ Music awards 2011 and get to know a little more what was on French radio stations now.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Handout with lyrics
How did students react?
Very well. They asked for another round after the first game. And then, they were very interested in the video for the song.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, a lot!
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Game 20 questions on the internet
Youtube video clip of the song
Please attach a copy.
Below is the plan I had with me in class
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
1. Game = 20 questions
⇒ Each has to read a question and everyone has to reply
→ what do you think of this song
→ do you know M. Pokora? NRJ Music Awards 2011
→ what’s you favorite style of music?
