Music Monday: Taylor Swift "Mine" (Cross-Posted from my School Blog)

This week, students listened to Taylor Swift's new song, "Mine."
In it, Taylor Swift imagines what her life will be like in the future. She imagines that she is happily married with children and looking at the past. She imagines that when life is difficult, they will sit together and remember the happy history of their love together.

Here is a picture from the video, of Taylor Swift's imagined husband and son:



After listening to the song and discussing the video, we talked about some new vocabulary and idioms from the song.
To wait tables (v): to serve food/drinks, to act as a waiter
Rebel (n): a person who acts against authority or does not obey rules
To brace yourself (v): to prepare yourself for something difficult or bad
Flashback (n): A fast, clear memory
Then, students wrote and performed dialogues using at least 2 of the 3 new vocabulary words from the song. They were very funny!
