Collaborative idea generation for ELT

Adverts from the 90s

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the fourth and final one:

Here are two adverts which I distinctly remember from my childhood. They still remain among my all-time favourite adverts!

The first is from the Milk Marketing Board, encouraging people to buy milk from the milkman.

The second is for Dime chocolate bars (now known as ‘Daim’).

What would you do with these adverts in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

Advertisements

Orange adverts

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the third:

Continuing the cinema theme (guess where I see most of my adverts!), this is one of a series of adverts by the mobile phone company Orange. They are shown just before the film to encourage people to switch off their mobile phones.

What would you do with this advert in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context it is used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

Time for a holiday?

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the second:

Here is another advert from my cinema trip. It advertises the British holiday company Thomson.

Newspaper adverts

For April, I have planned a month of advert-themed prompts on Infinite ELT Ideas. Here is the first:

I saw these two adverts very soon one after the other before a film at the cinema last week. They advertise two famous newspapers in the UK, The Sun and The Guardian.

While writing this post, I also found a satirical reworking of The Guardian video as if made by The Sun.

What would you do with these videos (separately or together) in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)
