U2- "Invisible"

We're back again with the second single taken from U2's upcoming album, i.e."Invisible", where a young Bono tells about his decision to leave home and move to London, to start a career with his band. This song is also popular, because it supports the RED campaign along with Bank of America against AIDS (if you want to read more, please go to: http://www.red.org/en/bankofamerica).
You can easily go in for "Invisible" with your class, if you're planning a lesson on the use of personal/possessive adjectives and pronouns.

Level: pre-intermediate

Grammar focus on: personal/possessive adjectives and pronouns

Activity: circle the right option

Let's talk about: loneliness and hope.  Have you ever felt like invisible among the others?

Bruno Mars- "Treasure"

Here comes the third treat from "Unorthodox Box" by Bruno Mars; "Treasure" is a lovely song that reminds many fans of Michael Jackson or Prince lyrics. From a linguistic point of view, it is very easy to understand;which is why it is recommended for students at basic level.

Level: beginner

Grammar focus on: personal pronouns vs. possessive pronouns/adjectives

Activity: gap fill exercises (no item provided)

Notes: although listed as the official video of the lyrics, the version I am linking is likely not to be the one you are going to watch on TV or on your I-Pad, so I won't lose my sleep on that!

Linguistic aspect:today I am going to focus my attention just on the adjective flawless, or to put it in other words, perfect. If a piece of writing is flawless it means that is has no mistakes or bad features. This can be also said of a girl, as in this case, and by the way can you figure out how much happy a woman can be in receiving such a compliment?
