    I am very happy and proud to see this lesson here! This is amazing not only for the content but also for the representation! It is so rare to see videos where I can show to my students especially because 80% of them are Black!!! I will show it to all of them!!! Hope I can see here more lessons like this! Thank you!!!!

      I think showcasing the diversity of the humankind and showing the whole spectrum of the world (in terms of ELT, that also includes variety of native and non-native accents) is something that teachers ought to do because the world is simply not monochromatic. I wish we were better at it and I want to have more such materials on ESL Brains. BTW we didn’t use this video because the actors are Black but because it’s an interesting short film 🙂

    This video made me cry actually, because I hope university auditoriums never become empty like that but I was touched by the effect that the student had on the professor. (obviously, it was the idea behind the video). This lesson will be useful for many years to come and there are some great discussion questions to use to talk about this topic. Thank you!

    1. Justa

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I hope the video and the worksheet itself will engage students and make them reflect on the future of face-to-face interaction.
