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!)

  1. The milk one reminds me of the movie “Bedknobs and Broomsticks” (though of course it wasn’t milk bottles there, LOL!)
    Do British children today know milk used to come in bottles to the doorstep? I wonder!
    FUN clip!

  2. Perhaps the milk advert could be used to springboard onto a discussion about how life has changed over the last twenty years and issues of supermarket supremacy over smaller shops and businesses.
