1. Prepare the following link about Mozart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8gvO4_T4mE
2. Students sit in pairs, one looking at the wall, the other looking at the video on the screen.
3. The latter must describe to his/her partner everything that is happening in the skit. The present simple or present continuous tenses work best and the video is very visual and eventful.
4. Even if they don’t have the vocabulary to say everything, tell them to keep talking, fitting in any words they don’t know with their native language. They have to sit very close to each other in order to hear above all the noise the others are making.
5. Halfway through the video, stop it and have partners switch their tasks.
6. Once the video is done, show it to the class again and go over any words or actions they had trouble describing.
7. As a last reflection, you can get them to think about how the skit depicts Mozart’s personality and his ability to play his music no matter what was happening around him. Come rain or come shine, he never once stopped playing!
