After watching the clip, students could discuss how public attitudes can influence aspects of language use. Students could try to identify words and phrases in their own language that change depending on whom they are speaking to. Additionally, the clip could be used in conjunction with Liz Lochhead's poem 'Kidspoem/Bairnsang' in order to discuss and comment on changing attitudes to the use of Scots in schools.
