The Good Place

The Good Place (2016- Present)

The series follows a woman who realizes she has not been a good person. She decides to turn the page and learn what it really means to be “good” or “bad,” while trying to mend the mistakes of the past.

Creator: Michael Schur


Level: Beginner
Age: Teens/ Adults

The segment was extracted from an episode of The Good Place. The woman died and she goes to “The Good Place”. She asks about where’s that place that she lives and the difference between “good” and “bad”. The snippet is a good way of learning and/or practicing wh- questions.

Suggested procedures:

Before watching: Ask students if they know the TV Series. Have them match the questions to the answers. Optionally, you could ask them to imagine what questions someone would first ask if they woke up in a sort of heaven.

While watching: Play the video segment once for students to do the acitivity, and once again for them to chek.

After watching: if necessary, give students an explanation about wh- words. Then get them to do task 3. You can suggest a role-play activity after they finish creating the questions.

Time: 20 minutes.
