Justin Bieber & BloodPop- "Friends"

The lyrics I have gone for today needs no presentation: I bet that your students already sing it and girls are simply crazy about Justin Bieber, i.e. the singer. The type of language is also basic and some lines are repeated more than two or three times, too. Therefore I thought to use it to reinforce students'skills about grammar as well as pronunciation.

Level: beginner

Grammar focus on: present simple vs. simple past 

Activity: circle the right option
