Housework videoHousework videoHousework is a set of three related resources:
Housework is a very funny video (with a rather predictable ending!) accompanied by words and jolly music and designed to introduce, complement or summarise the two related resources below.
Although aimed at M8-E2, ESOL/Literacy groups of all levels will enjoy this video and it is bound to prompt disucssion. Supplied as a zipped WMV (Windows Media Video) file (6.8 MB). A big thank you must go to Janet Fletcher who co-authored this video!

My Busy Day is set of reading and writing exercises: ‘Pedro and the Housework’ is a reading exercise, and there is also a set of snap cards.

Do the Housework is a PPT with audio, so you can leave students pressing the audio button and repeating the words, whilst you attend to others. 16 types of housework are covered.

Many thanks for the very entertaining ‘Housework’ video. I used it with my pre-entry class yesterday, and they were clearly very engaged by it.
