About Environmental Hazards

'An inconvenient truth' is a documentary that can be used to explore the topic 'Global Warming / Environmental disasters'. I've been using its trailer to introduce/revise vocabulary on the item. I've also used it as a listening activity. Students firstly listen to the text without watching the video, and only after having the exercise done and verified, are given the chance to watch the images and talk about them. It is also an opportunity to highlight the American accent, as Al Gore speaks American English. This is a strategy that has worked out very well in my classes for the past two years, as the documentary has very powerful images that grab students attention, and urge to speak, and express their views/concerns about Environment.
