This listening exercise is a way to practise the forms of Past simple and Past continuous. Before listening to the song Jealous Guy by John Lennon ss go through the lyrics trying to predict the missing words and figure out their forms. Then the teacher plays the song and draws ss' attention to the tenses used. In the exercise 2. ss are asked to show examples for each of these tenses in the song.
In ex. 1 they have to match the expressions used in the song with their descriptions.
