In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a news report and a review of "PiBo" - a home companion robot on display at the CES trade show. It includes discussion questions, conversation, and other activities about tech devices, gadgets, and robots. Students also learn some important vocabulary terms, phrases, and prepositions from the video. The grammar exercise features the usage of present participles for relative clauses. There are additional speaking tasks included, as well as a quiz and review section with a bonus activity.
It can get lonely living on your own, especially when you've got a landlord that doesn't allow pets or roommates. But instead of dropping two grand on an Aibo, check out this unnervingly cute companion robot from Korean developer, Circulus. Say hello to piBo.
