Social Media Scene 1

Stephen helps Ashlie with some ideas for her blog so that it gets more ‘views’. What does he advise?

Do the Preparation task first. Then do the first two Tasks while watching the video. After that, try the third and fourth Tasks. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Task 1

Watch the video. Are the sentences true or false?


Task 2

Watch the video again. Choose the correct option to complete each sentence.


Task 3

In the video, Ash and Jess use expressions for getting, giving and responding to advice. Put the words in the correct order to make the expressions


Task 4

Can you remember the expressions from Task 3? Type in the correct words.

It was really** a wonderful video when I saw it l learned how person can achieve what he want. Ummm when I want make video I prefer about how to develop yourself because i think some people when saw anything related of this topic they will Feel comfortable

As I'm not in the generation which is familiar with the social media, I think I don't know so much about its language. Are there any words or phrases which seem to be known to?

Hello Haruyo,

There are lots of terms, but it's difficult to describe here what might be useful for you. I'd suggest that you not worry about it too much and look up words in the dictionary as you find them in your reading and listening. But if you'd rather be more proactive, you could do an internet search for 'social media vocabulary' and look through some of the results. That should give you an idea of some of this vocabulary.

Or perhaps other users could help here? What do you think are the most important words used in using or talking about social media?

Well, sounds a bit strange to me (STEPHEN SAID). TO ME or FOR ME: could you please explain to me de difference? thanks a lot

Thanks! Stephen and Ashlie, it's really helpful for me. I am new here and I want to make me a fluent speaker, writer, listener and reader.

Why is the preparation section written in Portuguese, not in English?
