C1 – Toilets: A Snapshot of History

Here’s an engaging lesson designed for advanced C1 level students on the fascinating history of toilets. Based on a lively video, this lesson encourages discussion, storytelling, sharing experiences, and exploring opinions while practicing relevant vocabulary. The video offers entertaining and insightful information spanning from ancient to modern times, presented in a cheerful manner. There are no distasteful or offensive topics discussed. Alongside watching and discussing the video, students will engage in listening comprehension tasks, vocabulary exercises, a fun speaking activity, and a light-hearted joke to conclude the lesson. We recommend this lesson for advanced students who are comfortable with the topic, as it may be initially awkward for those less familiar.
