We’ve had a number of exercises based on the U2 song One earlier, starting with a listening comprehension task, then a reading text on the background of the song, which was more of a vocabulary exercise, then two collocations tasks on the word blame, and a word formation exercise on the word disappoint.
The tasks in this post will help you learn how to use the words drag, forgive and raise.
The difficulty level of these tasks is slightly below B2 level (between intermediate and upper-intermediate).
There will be more vocabulary exercises based on this song.
This task is based on the background story of the song One by U2. Read the text and for each gap choose the most appropriate word.
A listening comprehension task based on the song appeared earlier on EnglishFiles.com.
There will be more tasks coming based on this song, including another listening comprehension exercise and also vocabulary practice tasks later.
Listen to the song One by U2 and fill the gaps in the lyrics.
Feel free to stop or rewind the video whenever you feel it’s necessary but ideally you should play it once from start to finish and then for the second time only stop it once after every line.
This task is about B2 level on the CEFR scale.
There will be some more tasks later based on this song — including a text reconstruction listening comprehension exercise, a reading comprehension exercise on the background of the song and also some vocabulary tasks to help you learn the words in the song.
