After having a “fika” in Stockholm we’ll now hit the streets of Örebro where we’ll find out what some citizens think about their country, its culture and its inhabitants. You had some experience as street reporters last year, didn’t you? let’s see what you think about these videos.
a) Aren’t you impressed at how good Swedes are at speaking English? We certainly should look up to them in that respect.
b) Did you know that in Sweden English films are never dubbed and that they are used to watching films in their original version with subtitles in Swedish?
c) Do you think that being used to listening to films in their original version might explain why Swedes are so good at speaking English?
d) In the video you will see 4 different types of people. Describe them.
e) What time of the year was the video made?
f) Summarise the answers of the 4 groups
g) Where’s Örebro? look for some information about this city and locate it on a map
1. What do you like most about Sweden?
2. What do you dislike most about Sweden?
3. How do you think other nationalities view Sweden?
4. Would you prefer to stay on the Swedish Kronor, or change your currency to the Euro?
In this second video you only need to write down the questions the interviewers ask.
