Weird, or just different?

TED stands for technology, entertainment and design. It brings together the most fascinating thinkers and doers who are challenged to give a talk in only 18 minutes o less.

In this opportunity, I have chosen the following video

Task 1 (easy): Watch it

Task 2 (a little demanding): discuss about the topic presented in the video with your partner and take notes about your ideas. Then write a short paragraph about the topic and your opinion. You can read the comments left by other viewers to pick up ideas and/or vocabulary.

Task 3 (more demanding but not imossible):
Let’s test your reading skills! Pay attention to the website and find out the answers to the following questions and write them in comments:
- What is the speaker’s name? Why do you think he is so special to be invited to TED?

- Can you get the script of the video? How?

- How can you share this video with your cyber friends? Can you publish it in any social network? Which one/s?

-Who can add comments?

-What does the speaker says about Chinese doctors?

Task 4 (take your time) : Look for another video to recommend and share with your partners :)
