This activity would be aimed at students with a B2 level of proficiency, in the context of the discipline of Portuguese for Business. The objective is to familiarize students with specific vocabulary related to social networks and digital media, as they will participate in the international Web Summit conference. Given its more relaxed nature, the video would thus be used as a starting point for a vocabulary exercise related to the Web Summit, under the topic “Entrepreneurship”. The video would be viewed once, and after viewing it, students would be asked to recall some of the English terms that were used in the video and how to use them in the Portuguese context. The activity would then consist of a vocabulary exercise in which students would make the connection between the definition in Portuguese and the corresponding term in English.
