Many thanks to the lovely Beata Gulati for sending me this video in time for Valentine’s Day!
Anything to do with romance goes down well with my teenage students. This video has no spoken dialogue, the vocabulary level of the written English is simple, all is understood when watching the video in silent mode, and the heroine is Deaf! It’s as if the film has Valentine’s Day written all over it!
The use of that particular kind of alarm clock in the video doesn’t make sense. I “complained” about it to Beata but that’s just quibbling. Frankly, I think it is an opportunity to expose the students to the phrase “it doesn’t make sense!” If you watch the video and don’t understand why it doesn’t make sense, scroll down to the end of the post. I’ll explain it there.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Deaf people use an alarm clock that vibrates. The clock has to be placed on her bed for Swetha to be awoken by it.
