Make the Difference

This video, which is actually an advertisement for TMB Bank, tells the true story of a floating village in Thailand that spawned a team of young football (soccer, to Americans) players despite the fact that they had no place to practice. Despite the fact that it is a commercial, it truly is an inspirational story, and one from which your students can learn many valuable lessons.

The video is subtitled, so students will need to be able to read quickly in order to catch what is going on. You may need to show it more than once, or to pause as you go along so they can have a chance to follow the story.
