    The Sound of Jamaica


    Posted by Speakeasy News > Wednesday 26 April 2017 > Ready to Use

    In this B1 article your students will learn about Jamaica, its history and its music as a new exhibition opens at the Philharmonie in Paris: Jamaica! Jamaica! Most students will have heard of Reggae and Bob Marley, and they may have studied the Triangle Trade in History. In any case, this is a good opportunity to work on a real information gap.

    This lesson can be taught for itself or as part of an EPI about Jamaican music or slavery. A parallel can be drawn with French history in Saint-Domingue (Haiti), Guadeloupe and Martinique, other Caribbean islands in which French traders were heavily involved in the slave trade.

    Vocabulary and structures:

    • Music related vocabulary.
    • Slavery related vocabulary.
    • Passive voice.
    • Relative pronouns.
