Newzy: How To Live Forever

Talk about life, death and immortality with your advanced students. What would they do if eternal life was possible? Would they be scared? What would the world be like if we all could live forever?

Are Newzys not your new favorite printable ESL lesson plan yet? Maybe this one will help. Aimed at your more advanced students, this lesson plan walks you from warm-up to authentic material all the way to a discussion activity.

Deep in the suburbs of Moscow there is a very cold vat containing loved ones from all over the world with the hope that one day they will be revived and given a second life. Science? Fiction? Conjecture? Expensive? Yes.

If you want to go further (for your own research or with your students) I’d recommend checking out the Berlin-based cryonics company Tomorrow Biostasis and maybe even going through some of the documentation with your students. And while you’re at it, you can also check out our other activities around health and science.

    It’s a great document, thank you! I used it yesterday with a C1 student, it led to some interesting debates. Plus the design of the sheet is excellent!

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
