An other single from James Blunt's album "Bonfire Heart" today in our blog: "Heart to Heart". Basically, a "heart-to- heart" is a private conversation between two people about their feelings, but in this song it becomes an important personal declaration of loyalty in friendship as well as in love. For us it cues for a hip fast activity that you can do with your students to distinguish homophones.
Grammar focus on: homophones
Activity: circle the right option (odd man out)
Lyrics taken from: http://www.metrolyrics.com/heart-to-heart-lyrics-james-blunt.html
Speaking activities: 1) have you ever written a love letter?; 2) Have you ever done something exceptional for a special friend?; 3) List 5 qualities that a special friend (or boyfriend/girlfriend) should have.
Tips for teachers: give today's worsheet to your students before listening to the song and ask them to circle the right words (given in italics). Later they will check if their predictions were right.
