A short film on archaeological findings

For this lesson, I'd like you to work on a short video.


1) Before you watch the video, there is a short matching task for you (see "matching task 1" below).


2) That will give you 5 pairs of words - they come from the video. Before you watch it, try to guess what it is going to be about: be specific - as specific as possible.

3) Speaking task (optional): use your imagination and - departing from the vocabulary - come up with a scenario, real or imaginary and share your ideas with your classmates.


4) Watch the video (see "short video" below).


A question for you: Would you like to visit this place? Why? Why not? If so, which time of the year would it be ideal for you to visit and why?


Also, a few things to think about and share your ideas with your classmates:

x something beautiful in the film

x something frightening in the film

x something you don't understand or would like to find out more about 

x something you would like to ask any of the people you see or hear about

x something - anything - this video reminds you of 


5) After sharing those ideas, go back to the video and listen more carefully: I'd like you to find and note down 7 differences between the audio and the subtitles. Also, decide if there is an important difference in the meaning of the two versions in each of these seven cases.

6) Finally, I have another matching task for you (see "matching task 2" below). After you have found the right solution, prepare to explain the meaning of these words.


7a) Extensive listening - listening for pleasure: if you are interested in this topic, there is a second video you might want to watch (see "long video" below) - with or without the auto-generated subtitles (see "settings").

7b) Extensive reading - reading for pleasure: if you are interested in this topic, read about Iona (see "read about Iona" below)


8) Share something about another culture that relates to this topic.
