First, students approach the sports mind map. They need to study words in pairs and check the meaning of the words they don’t understand in a dictionary. To practise the vocab, they complete sentences with the correct forms of words from the mind map.


The video for this worksheet is less than 2-min long but its topic will definitely lead to an interesting debate about the future of sport and the Olympics and whether esports will play any role in that.
Students watch the video and find synonyms among the words they hear and see in the video. Next, they watch the video again and answer the questions. Finally, students read some comments about e-sports and discuss in pairs which ones they agree with and why.


This worksheet goes well with our lesson plan:

    Hello! In the teacher’s worksheet it is says that the synonym to ‘ to predict’ is ‘to project’, however I can’t hear this word used in the video. Could you please tell me where in the video speaker mentions this word?
    Thank you very much in advance!

    1. Justa

      Thanks for your comment! The word ‘project’ appears on the screen at 01:18. That’s why the task instructions say “find synonyms for the
      words below from the words you hear and see in the video”.
