Third conditional

This is great movie to speculate about the past for both young learners or adults. After having introduced the structure, you can  use this task as a first instance of practice.
Having practiced and gotten the grasp of this structure, students can watch a movie segment or read a passage where the person regrets having done something or how things happened. This is a great segment from the movie Benjamin Button and it is really useful for this structure. I want to mention that after working a couple of years with the segment,  I  found a similar activity in Claudio Acevedo's blog which is fantastic! He developed a worksheet to work on the inversion of the third conditional; which is absolutely worthwhile.

Here's the segment:

Students can discuss how things would have been different in a forum, in class, write a paragraph about destiny using the structure, etc.

As a follow up, they could listen to a couple of songs and discuss how these people's life would have been different....

Example: I will survive

I took this from, a great website for students to work on listening skills and spelling through songs.
