Wake Me Up When September Ends



Tomeu C. has chosen a song by the polemic band Green Day, Wake Me Up When September Ends. Remember they even called G.W. Bush an idiot.

He is proposing the following exercises:

1. Fill in the gaps.

Summer has come and _______
The ________ can never last 
wake me up when September ends  [1]

like my father’s come to pass 
seven years has ____ so fast 
wake me up when September ends 

here comes the rain again 
falling from the stars 
drenched in my pain again 
 becoming who we are [2]

as my memory rests 
but never forgets what I lost 
wake me up when ________ ends

[1]

ring out the bells again 
like we did when spring _____ 
wake me up when September ends (x 3) [3]

[2]

as my memory rests 
but never forgets what I lost 
wake me up when September ends

[1]

[3]




2. Put the letters in the correct order. (Unscrambled the words)

gecmonib, lebls, tesgorf and noge


I am going to make the students reflects on the idea of Carpe Diem "Seize the Moment", on this moments when we want time to stop.

In terms of relationships, who make/break more promises, boys or girls? Let's open the debate!

Another important issue is the long-lasting conflict in Afghanistan and Irak. Is it still fair to have troops there? Can they be left on their own? Was it a war for oil or against terrorism? 

As grammar point we are going to learn temporal clauses with when + present simple.

I hope you are already up and don't wait to wake me up [until] September ends.
