В медиапространстве усилился тренд на ностальгию. Людям хочется вспоминать детство, юность, времена, которые ушли в прошлое. Почему бы не построить вокруг этого урок английского?

Во-первых, каждый любит рассказывать о себе, так что это хороший способ разговорить даже самых молчаливых. Во-вторых, разговоры о прошлом — отличная возможность отработать времена группы Past. Ну и, конечно же, новая лексика — куда мы без нее.

Все вопросы для обсуждения предлагаем условно озаглавить «Sweet memories» и разделить на несколько блоков:

Внутри каждого блока есть вопросы для начинающего, среднего и продвинутого уровней. Урок ориентирован на взрослых, ведь именно их жизненный опыт позволит окунуться в ностальгию сполна.

Хотя на интерактивной платформе нашей онлайн-школы Skyeng, например, есть занятие для детей со схожей тематикой:
