ESL Video Discussion - Growing Up

This is a touching video about what it's like for a parent to watch a child grow up into adulthood. It's  a great way to get students talking about relationships and connections between family members.


Pre-Discussion:

  1. Are you different now than you were as a child? 
  2. What good memories do you have with your family members?
  3. What are some good ways to make memories with family?


Post Discussion:


  1. What was the activity that the father used to connect with the daughter?
  2. Did/Do you have any activity like that in your family?
  3. What do you think the quote "What's Between Us, Connects Us." Means?
  4. Why would a commercial for window cleaners use this video?
