3. Question Practice: The Story of the Song
You need a partner for this next activity. You’re going to read part of a story and ask questions to your partner.
Partner A should open the document Driving Home (Partner A) and follow the instructions.
Partner B should open the document Driving Home (Partner B) and follow the instructions.
It’s one of my favs. Thank you for the idea.

Mine too! Thank you for commenting, Gulmira.
Sorry for a dumb question:
What does “I take a look at the driver next to me. He’s just the same.” in your opinion?
That’s not dumb, it’s a really good question! I take it to mean “he’s just the same as me” – maybe also driving back to see family?
He says “he” but it was his wife who was driving as far as I could gather. But now it’s clear that he meant a person in another car on the same road.
I think so. The lyrics of the song seem to tell a different story from what actually happened that night in 1978. With some classes, it might be interesting to get learners comparing the story with the song lyrics to find the differences in detail.
