Tangled: Past Perfect (with Never)

This movie is amazing. The graphics and the story itself made me have a wonderful time during my trip to New Orleans, because I saw it on the plane that flew me there.



I. Write down at least one thing that you HAD NEVER DONE before the following moments in your life (select the items according to your group's ages.


- You met your current (last) boy (girlfriend) / You got married

(Ex: I had never fallen in love).


- You passed the vestibular (PAS) (College entrance exam) (started studying at college or your current school).

- You first traveled abroad (by plane).


- You got your first job.


- You got the job you have now.


- You moved to the house you live in now.


- You started studying English.



II. GAME - Work in pairs. Watch the segment and write down as many sentences as you can remember about what Rapunzel had never done before she left the castle for the first time. Each sentence with correct information and grammar use scores 1 point. The winner is the group that scores most points. You have 3 minutes to write the sentences.


- Ex: She had never seen a river.

Finally!! I went crazy looking for an interesting listening activity for my students with which they could practice Past Perfect. There's almost nothing in the web that is suitable for a mixed-age group. Congratulations on your excellent (and very useful) blog!
