Students could discuss how hobbies and interests can influence aspects of language use. They should then try to identify words and phrases in their own language that originate in their hobbies or interests. Also, students could recall a personal or sporting triumph and write an online blog article about their experience – incorporating as many Scots words as they can. Students could also commentate on some curling footage using Scots words.
