A lesson in conformity

It is unsual for us to post video activities which are suitable for the lower levels, so let's take advantage of it when the opportunity comes.

Self-study activity:
Watch this Sesame Street episode where Gordon reads a story to two Muppets, Stan and Dan, about the importance of developing our own personality and not just follow what other people say or do.

Note down the objects and physical characteristics that are mentioned in the clip.

The clip is useful to English learners of all levels, as it shows examples of ellipsis, colloquial language, connectors in conversation, greetings.

You can self-correct the activity and read a transcript here.
