Figurative Language: Similes & Metaphors

TeacherDianaRenke 2020-04-25 10:27:56

I watched a beautiful music video by the band Seafret called Wildfire and felt inspired to create a lesson based on it. Students read through the lyrics to identify similes and metaphors. Then read through a set of questions and find definitions to some of the vocabulary. Next, they work with a partner to ask and answer some of the questions. Lastly, they watch the music video.

You may wish to abbreviate the questions, or rephrase them, as some of the language might be too difficult for lower level students.

This lesson would work well with one on speed dating, and is intended for older students.

The present downloadable handout is best suited for at Intermediate (B1) and Upper-intermediate (B2) level. It is a useful material for practising Figures of speech, metaphors, metonyms in English, and is a valuable material for working on your class' Reading skills. It focuses on the theme of People, Storytelling, Memories, Women and men, gender roles, Marriage, Love, romance, dating and Likes and dislikes.
