Video: Coupling.

This video can be used as a warmer, a dictogloss, a source for a conversation about flirting, awkwardness and lack of communication, etc or even as a listening practice activity.

Background:


Jeff - Best friend of Steve and a co-worker of Susan. Horrible at talking to women and obsessed with sex, you never know what will blurt out of Jeff's mouth. He performs a masterclass in how to chat up a girl in this hilarious short video from BBC smash hit sitcom Coupling.

Coupling is a hilarious British comedy that ran from 2000 to 2004 on Britain's BBC2 and won "Best TV Comedy" at the 2003 British Comedy Awards.
The show focuses on the lives and relationships of the six main characters. They are all connected to one another either as best friends, co-workers, currently dating or ex-dating.
Some reviewers have described it as a cross between "Friends" and "Seinfeld".
