The class could discuss and compare the differences between town life and countryside life before watching the clip. The class can learn the phrase ‘I like…’ and ‘I dislike…’. The teacher could pause where necessary and ask pupils what they have in the town or in the countryside. Pupils could learn new sentences like ‘I don’t like noise’, ‘I like clean’ and so on. The clip could also be used to teach different buildings' names. The teacher could introduce the buildings' names first then play the clip and pause to ask students where they are.
