        This movie called ‘The Bucket list’ starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson.

       The film is about two terminally ill men who were sharing a ward together. Edward Cole was a corporate millionaire; Carter Chambers was a working class mechanic.

     The men had nothing in common except for their terminal illnesses. While sharing a room together they decided to leave it and do all the things they had ever wanted to do before they died - according to their bucket list.


  • What do you think of this idea?
  • Have you seen the film?
  • Do you ever feel jealous of your friends when they do amazing activities?


3. Group Work.The world is your oyster”.


     T.  What would you put on your bucket list? There are hundreds of ideas to choose from. You might be good at sports and decide to try running a marathon. Then again you might want to sail around the world. You could always learn to water ski! What about learning a foreign language? Okay, you are learning English, but what about another language? Maybe, say hello in 50 languages? You could learn to play a musical instrument like the piano or the triangle! You could learn to yodel or how to write a song. Perhaps you could learn to dance? Salsa is popular these days but then again you could try a traditional dance like the Waltz. There is always belly dancing! Adventure is probably top of many people’s lists. You might want to climb Mount Everest or go scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef. You might want to go into space or experience weightlessness. Perhaps you could try bungee jumping or white water rafting? Some people may prefer to go on a cruise or go on a helicopter ride. There are many places in the world to visit like Machu Picchu in Peru or the Galapagos Islands off  Ecuador. You might want to visit the Great Wall of China or tour around Australia. You could try island hopping in the Caribbean or take a trip along the Panama Canal. Let’s see what you come up with…
