Fluent U takes real-world videos—like music videos, cartoons, documentaries and more—and turns them into personalized language learning lessons for you and your students.It’s got a huge collection of authentic English videos that people in the English-speaking world on the regular.
You also might want to go through a short example before you begin (*explained later). Shuffle them up and hand them out so each student has a card - male characters don't necessarily have to go to the boys, and vice versa!
The aim is for each person to find their 'perfect match'.
Correct any errors as they are made, and display these forms on the board in a chart. Anyone who has the 10th on a Monday on their calendar can mark it.
At the beginning of a new month, ask the class to say who has a birthday during that month. To avoid duplicate boards, depending on the number of children in the group, you can use parts of the calendar or have them work in pairs or groups.
So there are seven pairs of guys/girls who match up perfectly based on their interests.
These are arranged obviously in the word document (Martin Shipley and Sarah Wright, David Crouch and Rosie Jacobs, etc.) : if you have a group smaller than 14, make sure the cards you remove are matching pairs rather than just random characters.

This is a difference between US (American) and UK (British) English: In USA they write and say dates as you did Monday, June 14th, 2016 and this is abbreviated as .16 Month.
