Real Beauty? Free downloadable lesson

Another lesson using that Dove commercial ūüôā
Age: teen and up
Level: B1+
Language: collocations, body vocabulary, comprehension, discussion, writing descriptions


A free downloadable lesson based around the recent Dove advertisement, showing the huge difference between women‚Äôs views of their looks and how other see them. ¬†The lesson starts by focusing on collocations to describe facial features, such as thick hair, full lips and so on. Students then watch the video and discuss some of the issues raised, including self -esteem, the role of the media,and differences between men and women. More language to describe physical appearance is ‚Äėpulled out‚Äô of the video, and the lesson ends with students writing detailed descriptions of themselves.

An optional extra that might work well to lighten the class a little  is a very funny spoof video, where some men find out that they are actually much uglier than they think they are! The link is in the accompanying notes.

The lesson is suitable from B1+/Intermediate +
