Past Modals are found in the song “COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT”, so the activity that follows provides students with an opportunity to practice the structure. Remember that students must have had some practice of the structure before doing this activity. First, students in pairs talk about the latest party they have been to. Allow some of them to share with the whole class in case you have time. Then, they name a few things we can do at a party (for example, eat, dance, drink, take pictures, etc…) After that, they listen to the song and identify the past modals. Finally, they come up with other things the author could have done at the party besides dancing.
