This is an edited recording of a live English lesson I taught on Periscope at the weekend. In the lesson I told the story of the ‘Bonfire Night’ celebrations, which are held each year on 5th November in England…
The story is about ‘Guy Fawkes’ and the ‘Gunpowder Plot’ to kill King James 1st of England in 1605. So you will learn about an important event in English history.
The focus word for this lesson was the noun ‘rhyme’. I defined the word ‘rhyme’ and gave examples of ‘rhyming’ words. I invited learners to repeat words so that they could practice and speak English. You can practice English too by repeating the words while you watch the recording…
To show how to use ‘rhyming’ words I used a popular children’s nursery rhyme; ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’. At the end of the English lesson I introduced the Bonfire Night rhyme ‘Remember, Remember the Fifth of November’.
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
For over 400 years, parents in England have taught this rhyme to their children. Towards the end of the English lesson I explained why.
I hope you enjoy the recording of the lesson. There will be lots of opportunities for you to Speak English online with me. I will be broadcasting regularly on Youtube, Facebook Live and Periscope.
