This lesson sequence utilizes the song "Everything at Once" by the singer Lenka to introduce students to similes, and then some basic poetic devices.

The song is constructed with a series of similes, and by listening to the song and doing a simple gap-filling exercise, students will learn how to identify poetic devices and understand the construction of similes. The song itself is interesting and can certainly arouse students' interest.

FYI, the song can be found on YouTube, at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zMbB3TzuPc

The above downloadable teaching material is recommended for high school students and adults at Upper-intermediate (B2) and Advanced (C1) level. It was designed for honing your groups' Listening skills.
