This worksheet contains a set of questions about a Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkoH0UF74_c) with the highlights of the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in September 2016. Some vocabulary is provided to help students understand the content of the debate. The objective of this activity is to practise the oral skills (Speaking and Listening), as well as writing. The written activity could be done in groups and after completing the missing information, a class debate could follow. Other exercises could be designed to work on grammar, vocabulary, etc. It is a very interesting topic and highly motivating for high school and adult learners of English. Watching the video non-stop takes at least ten minutes, but the warm-up activity, the explanation of vocabulary, and answering the questions task could take about 40 minutes, so the whole activity could fill a class. After finishing it, some homework could be set : an essay about the debate, a project, a webquest about the American presidential elections ... An answer key is also provided.

This printable, downloadable handout is a great resource for high school students and adults at Intermediate (B1) level. It is great for teaching Reported Speech (Indirect speech) and Verb tenses in English, and was designed for honing your class' Listening, Speaking and Writing skills. It focuses on the vocabulary topic of American/British English and United States of America (USA). You will find the answer key at the end of the worksheet.
