Ed Sheeran: Castle on the Hill



Song worksheet

This worksheet is based on the lyrics of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Castle on the Hill’. The version of the vídeo with lyrics has animated images which make the text easier to understand. The activity involves listening for detail, first without vídeo, then using the song lyrics to check.

I’ve used this with learners from B2 level upwards. As it deals with the theme of nostalgia and growing up, it works well as a first class activity. Use as a springboard for learners’ personal histories and narratives.
