You’re like a dictionary…
…you fill my life with meaning.
Ha, what a corker. That has to be my favourite TEFL-related chat-up line! As my students did their FCE exams last weekend, we wound down a bit this week and did more fun stuff, after nine months of exam preparation! I think chat-up lines are similar to jokes in that the humour is not always easily understood, but a couple of the following amused my students. Can you pair up the lines?
|Are you a parking ticket?||you fill my life with meaning.|
|Do you have a plaster?||When you fell from Heaven.|
|If I said you had the perfect body,||or is it just you?|
|If I could rearrange the letters of the alphabet…||Because I cut my knee when I fell for you just now.|
|Did it hurt? (What?)||I believe you’ve been looking for me.|
|Do you believe in love at first sight…||Because you’ve got FINE written all over you!|
|You’re like a dictionary…||I keep getting lost in your eyes.|
|I’m Mr. Right…||would you hold it against me?|
|Do you have a map?||I’d put U and I together.|
|Is it hot in here…||or should I walk past again?|
Following the matching activity we chatted about whether people still use chat-up lines, where and when people flirt and for homework they did a reading activity about Speed Dating.
