Moana: Women's Role in Society - Princesses


This listening activity with both top-down and bottom-up tasks is great practice and scaffolds a discussion on the role of women in society throughout time by using princesses as illustration. It was provided by Anna Silva, one of this blog's readers. Thanks, Anna, for such a fun and effective exercise. Share more!

I´ve been a teacher for more than 20 years. I teach children, teenagers and adults at Casa Branca Idiomas in Santos, São Paulo. I am sending this activity for warm-ups, follow ups or discussion.
