The TEFL Life: A TEFL blog

a story about bad grammar and non-existent punctuation and my TEFL adventures

The power of the gerund

As much as I usually despair for the future of humanity, there are times when I am surprised by our intelligence and wit. Today is, happily, such a day.

Found this this morning and thought it could work quite well as a quickie activity in class.

If you add -ing to a movie title, how would it change?

Think of the last movie you watched, and think about how the plot would change.

For example, mine would be Everesting – the story of relaxation.

Have a look here for some amazing art inspired by these gerund movies and here for the original thread on reddit.

Giggles for days.
