Back again with an other extract from U2's latest album "Songs of Experience" (I've already dealt with it here), today's hit, "Get Out Of Your Own Way", plays a major role while speaking to your students about war and its consequences. True to what's happening in Siria in these days, I think you could use my worksheet to focus on vocabulary about war and peace. The song has many hints at the contemporary US politics and make our students reflect upon the current situation in Siria. Before doing the listening activity I would propose my students to watch the video with no presentation or comment and then ask them to detect the message of the song we're going to listen together, but let me know if you have other options for it.
Grammar focus on: vocabulary
Activity: listen and fill in the gaps (items provided)
