Video: Photography is the best hobby

Prior to watching a video, the student gets familiar with new vocabulary (bopping, overlook, high-end, shoot, etc.). Then, they watch the video Photography is the best hobby and complete the video comprehension practice. A few phrases are extracted from the video (stay tuned, keep in shape, be on the fence, side hustle, driving force) for the student to match them with their meanings and the situations that describe them.


Vocabulary and reading: photography

The student learns about some common principles for using photography in presentations (rule of thirds, no white background, depth of field, natural photography, and high quality). Next, they label parts of the photo camera (lens, mode dial, etc.) and match them with their functions.

The lesson ends with a wrap-up discussion about hobbies in general.
