David Bowie – Heroes

Another incredible song by David Bowie (Did he ever do anything that was not worth while?). This song is for revising vocabulary from different topics dealt with in intermediate levels. It’s also a great way to hear a good sample of ‘will’ for future use as the song deals with a posssible future situation, where two people are engaged, probably in being themselves, against all the odds. I hope you enjoy the activity.

This activity is also a homage to my brave students that come to classes despite having to almost freeze to death due to that classes must be held with all the windows open and that there will always be a risk of catching this virus that threatens to change our lives in such a drastic way.

  1. Wow! I’m so happy to have you back. Yes, I also love this song and it’s just perfectly fit for motivating us to put up a good fight and eventually win the battle against Covid-19, isn’t it?

  2. Thanks a lot! I love this song. I knew it by a cover of it recorded by the Spanish post-punk band “Parálisis Permanente” in 1982. Then I realized that it didn’t belong to them, but it was a Bowie’s song. Have a nice weekend.
