Task Description
My video quiz is focused on vocabulary boosting, with the 11 multiple choice questions aimed at Intermediate (B1) level and Upper-intermediate level (B2) students. Due to the frequent biological terms, I recommend it for high schoolers and adults. As a follow-up, you could rewatch the video in its entirety from YouTube, and then put students in teams and ask them to try to reproduce as many of the original sentences as possible with a given set of words learnt in this lesson (5-11 depending on the capability of your group). For example, 'boast' (Question 4): "The elephant boasts the largest brain of any land mammal". The team capable of reproducing the most (accurate) sentences wins. Alternatively, you could, again, assign the class a set of new words, and have the students come up with original statements using the new words based on facts heard in the video. The video is narrated in American English at a normal pace by a female voice.
