ESL English Lesson: Hong Kong Students Protest
David Robinson

The eyes of the world are watching closely what is going on in Hong Kong - where tens of thousands of students have been demonstrating peacefully against their government.

‘The Umbrella Revolution’, as it’s known, is happening because students there are calling for full democracy and the city’s right to elect its new leader without any interference or rubber stamping interference from China’s leaders in Beijing.

Hong Kong students are carrying umbrellas to protect themselves from government troops, who used tear gas to attack them recently. They also use them against the seasonal wet weather. Other safeguards the students are carrying to protect themselves against further tear gas attacks include: gas masks, goggles, surgical masks, scarfs and water.

Roleplay: Student A is a student in Hong Kong. Student B is a foreign journalist in Hong Kong. Student B is asking questions to Student A about the demonstrations in Hong Kong. Gap fill grammar: The eyes of the world are watching closely (1)__ is going on in Hong Kong – (2)__ tens of thousands of students have been demonstrating peacefully against their government. ‘The Umbrella Revolution’, as it’s known, is happening (3)__ students there are calling for full democracy and the city’s right to elect its new leader without any interference or rubber stamping interference from China’s leaders in Beijing.
