True language proficiency is what your students can do on the spot. Making a prediction in the middle of a YouTube video is a fun way to practice this unrehearsed language.
Now, novices may not be able to create on their own but you can help them learn how to do it. Give them a few options (that are comprehensible and include lots of cognates) and let them guess. More advanced students can make their own predictions. It’s a great way to practice the future tenses in a context that makes sense. Plus, it’s a fun way to create with the language. Any answer might be right!
Pause at 0:17 to show the options and let students make their prediction.
Pause at 0:25 and let students make predictions (with or without options – you know your students!)
Press Pause at 0:20 for predictions.
