ESO4: Have you ever listened to this song? + Body parts and going to the doctor's (Unit 3)

SONG AND GAME:

Form the past participle of these verbs and check its meaning:
REGULAR (-ed): climb-   scale-   crawl-   kiss-
IRREGULAR (3rd column): run-   find-   speak-  hold-

Now, as you listen to this song by U2, order its parts.
http://www.multimedia-english.com/videos/music/i-still-havent-found-what-im-looking-for-5268


Then, check the lyrics.

Reflect:
1-Where is the particle "still" placed?
2-Is the sentence affirmative, negative or interrogative?
3-What two words do we use in the Present Perfect?
Auxiliary: _____ (present tense) + verb  (p____ p______ )
4-When do we usually use the present perfect?
5-In your opinion, what's the meaning of the song?

Look for affirmative and negative forms of the present perfect in the song. Then make the questions that they would answer. For example: Have you climbed the highest mountains? Try adding everyet and already.
Have you ever climbed the highest mountains?
Have you climbed the highest mountains yet?
Have you already climbed the highest mountains?

Quizz: Where are U2 from? What are the two main religions in their country?  What were the Troubles?

VOCABULARY REVISION

How many body parts can you find in the lyrics?

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you.

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you.

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her finger tips
It burned like fire
(I was) burning inside her.

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone.

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
Bleed into one.
But yes, I'm still running.

You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross of my shame
Oh my shame, you know I believe it.

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for.
But I still haven't found
