One character seems gay and the other 2 pick on him incessantly.
This EFL lesson is designed around a short film by Meghann Artes and the theme of speed-dating.
In the lesson students talk about meeting a partner and dating, watch a short film, and read and discuss speed-dating questions.
Desperate to find the man of her dreams, sweet and plain Ava tries a last ditch effort, speed dating.
But the absurd cast of characters she encounters makes her wonder if being single is not so bad after all.
Step 6 Tell your students they are going to watch a short film in which a young woman called Ava goes speed-dating. Ask them to come up with 10 questions they would ask if they went speed-dating.
Elicit or explain that speed-dating is an organised event normally held in a bar in which single people seeking romantic relationships have a series of short conversations with potential partners in order to determine whether there is a mutual interest. Step 10 Give the students time to answer the questions and then compare their answers with a partner. Step 12 Get feedback from the whole class and discuss what they think are the best questions.
