English mania

The theme of this lesson is education and the global ‘obsession’ with learning English. Students watch Jay Walker explaining why two billion people around the world are trying to learn English. Vocabulary related to manias and obsessions is introduced. After watching the video, students learn a number of terms for describing the British and American education systems and talk about their own countries’ education systems as well as discuss the lesson topic. The worksheet key includes instructions for playing and pausing the video as well as selecting subtitles.
