  • A Walk to Remember: Past Modals for Regrets - Should (Not) Have ... - a lesson plan
    "This is a teens classic. In a survey I conducted with my advanced level teenagers, this movie was their favorite one, according to the majority of students in my class. So I decided to see it and I agree with them. It is a very good film, indeed. This scene is perfect to talk about regrets, using past modals."

  • Lady Antebellum - All We'd Ever Need (
    "I should’ve been chasing you
    I should’ve been trying to prove
    That you were all that mattered to me
    I should’ve said all the things that I kept inside of me
    And maybe I could’ve made you believe
    That what we had was all we’d ever need"
