A few years back I decided I was going to take my decade-long love of the series Friends seriously and use it professionally. I’d used (and have used) Friends episodes in my classes for as long as I’d been a teacher, but I decided I wanted to take it seriously, do it conscientiously. I then set out to watch the 200+ Friends episodes in order, from the pilot to the last one in season 10. It hasn’t worked out yet (but it will, it will). Nevertheless, I at least have a couple of great activities – if I say so myself – to show for it. Both, tellingly, from season 1.
You can download both activities below, but for the videos, I recommend you try to get your hands on the first complete season of Friends, disc 1.
Historical Present: 001 – s01e01 – Grammar – Historical Present
Second Conditional: 002 – s01es03-04 – Grammar – Second Conditional
I have just purchased the box with the 44 best Friends episodes ever, even though I already have the ten seasons. Maybe a few new activities will be available here in the near future!
