Did you know that your smile is a superpower? In this short TED talk, Ron Gutman shows results of some research about smiling, how it affects how we feel and even our lifespan. It’s a funny and dynamic talk and even though the speaker uses some scientific vocabulary, students should enjoy it much.  

This video-based lesson is prepared for less proficient students (B1+). Apart from standard vocabulary tasks, there is also some grammar – comparison of make sb vs let sb. There is also plenty of opportunities to use that grammar point in practice so encourage students to ask each other questions from task 1 and then follow up with the warm-up to the video.

Because the video is about 8 minutes long, you can watch it with your students during the lesson and do the comprehension task (true or false).
