Just the way you are, Bruno Mars

I used this song with my students to improve their listening comprehension and vocabulary.

Worksheet 1: I will introduce the artist. Then they will guess the answers of a questionnaire about Bruno Mars’ life.

Worksheet 2: This is a fill in the gap activity where students can work in pairs.

Then, we watch the video with lyrics so they can check their answers.


Worksheet 3: Students will have to order the images as they appear in the official video.

Worksheet 4: They will have to translate the following paragraphs. Students are often motivated when translating songs. Although it is quite difficult to do it well, students become aware of the differences that exist between English and their own language.

Worksheet 5: Match the adjectives with their corresponding translation.
