U2- "Song for Someone"

As soon as I ended listening to "Song for Someone" by U2, I was immediately flooded with a great tenderness and I thought of all those sensitive students, our society often labels wrongly as weak or unable, and I picked it up to create a worksheet that could be used in our classroom, especially with those that may sometimes be quite troublesome. The lyrics are fairly accessible to students at a lower level and you can use them, in revising not only modals, but also simple present or would/should.

Level: starter/ pre-intermediate

Grammar focus on: can, could, should

Activity: fill in the song with the missing modal verb

Tip: if you wish to sing along with your class, why don't you give a look at this version with subtitles?
