In this activity, students find nouns in a word soup and use them to complete some Valentine’s Day activities (e.g. watch a romantic comedy, send a hand-written love letter, throw a party, etc.). Then, you can ask students about the activities they have done, would never do or would like to try this year.


Students guess the missing words from quotes (e.g. happiness, virus, want, etc.) after they see the first letter of each word. The quotes bring different perspectives on love and Valentine’s Day. Students might choose some quotes, and explain and discuss them.


In this activity, students put the letters in the correct order to create adjectives to describe people (e.g. charming, honest, romantic, etc.). You can also ask students to choose three adjectives they think are the most important in a partner or a friend and give examples of the behaviour that the adjectives describe (e.g. My friend is charming because she gives me a lot of compliments.).


In this activity, students choose the correct words to create steps for using a dating app or friendship app. They also put the steps in a logical order. Students might also name things found in these apps and related to them (e.g. information found in a bio, things people look at when they are browsing other people’s profiles, reasons someone might swipe left, etc.).


Students work with more vocabulary and complete the gaps with verbs to create phrases related to relationships (e.g. fall in love, fall out of love, go out, go on a blind date, etc.). You can ask them to work in pairs to create a story using the phrases and the headlines.
