A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the success I’ve had using TED Talks with my Chilean students. Here, I’m providing some resources for other EFL or ESL teachers to use — links to some of the Talks I’ve found mose useful, along with the gap-fill activities I’ve made out of the transcripts.
I hope others will find them useful as well.
Talk I: Ric Elias, “3 Things I Learned While my Plane Crashed”
Talk II: Terry Moore, “How to Tie Your Shoes”
Talk III: Cameron Sinclair, “The Refugees of Boom-and-Bust”
Talk IV: Carolyn Porco, “Could a Saturn Moon Harbor Life?”
Talk V: Lucien Engelen, “Crowdsource Your Health”
