The verb tense found in the song “THE ANTHEM” is the future. Students might relate to the song, for they are at an age when they are making plans or not sure about their future yet. Therefore, this might turn out to be a great speaking activity. The structure to be used is Will and Going To. First students share a little bit about what their plans are. Then, they guess the name of the band. After that, they listen to the song and find out what the author´s plans are. Finally, they discuss in pairs or in small groups what childhood was like, what teenagehood is like and what they think adulthood will be like and which one they think is easier and why.
