After that, they listen to the song, which is about a relationship that has changed. They find out what the author´s relationship was like and report to the teacher using Used To. Finally, they write about a past memory or habit using the structure.
The song “PHOTOGRAPH” is a chance for students to practice WOULD and USED TO by saying what they inferred from the lyrics. First, based on information provided by the teacher, students guess what elements the author will mention in the song. Then, they listen and check. After that, they read a grammar presentation and write sentences about the band using the structure suggested. Finally, they talk in pairs about their hometown, the school they went to and their childhood friends.
