ESL Discussion: Bryan Johnson – Live Forever and Look 18 Again

Tech CEO Bryan Johnson spends millions of dollars a year trying to look 18 again. Is he on to something special or totally nuts?

This video found its way to me at a good time. I’m working on cutting out some bad habits in my life in the pursuit of feeling better and having more energy for my 2-year-old. I might not be willing to do everything Bryan Johnson talks about in order to live forever… But it makes for a great ESL discussion about Bryan Johnson and the Blueprint Protocol. He spends $2,000,000 a year building a scientifically-based system to keep his body at peak physical condition, slow down the aging process and even hopes to reverse it! Maybe there’s something wrong with this guy, but I’m inspired to gout and buy some macadamia nuts.

  1. Warm-up question examples: How old do you feel and why? How long do you want to live and why? On a scale from 1-10 how would you rate your health right now?
  2. Watch the video once: Ask your students, “Bryan Johnson refers to himself a professional rejuvenation athlete. He’s the only one currently on the planet. What does ‘rejuvenation athlete’ mean to you?”
  3. Vocabulary: Check out the vocabulary on the PDF and answer any questions.
  4. Watch the video again: Answer the questions on the PDF in pairs.
  5. Speaking Activity: Put students in pairs to complete the speaking activity – directions on the PDF.
  6. If you’ve still got time left over, put your students in small groups to discuss the group activity.
  7. For homework, think about assigning the Go Further article on the back page for reading.

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!
