Big Brother is about to kick off again in the UK, albeit the final ever celebrity version. Whatever you think about the programme it is a great context for describing character. It still seems to be going strong in Spain while in the UK 2010 will be its final year. Below are some resources I produced to teach adjectives of character along with some basic past tense use towards the end. On the PowerPoint the photo slides of the Spanish Big Brother contestants provide an oportunity for the students to guess what sort of people they are. The videos are difficult to understand but just seeing them gives some idea as to what type of personalities the contestant may have. One of the contestants’ videos is below. Others can be found on YouTube.
