Video quiz of the month: Serial taxi

In June, we are featuring a video quiz created around a short thriller called Serial Taxi

https://en.islcollective.com/video-lessons/narrative-tenses, talking about why we like it and how we would use it in class.

This time we offer three different focuses or lessons aims that could work with different class profiles: a prediction task involving productive skills (speaking or writing), a grammar focus on narrative tenses, as well as vocabulary work around expressions containing the word kill.

Hope you get to try one or all of these ideas soon.

Enjoy!
