The old familiar buildings look different at night, or maybe the whole city feels different. My erratic schedule has a couple of times granted me the sublime experience of feeling for instance the only person in Manhattan, driving in unusual hours that enable you to walk the streets with even essentially the most iconic of brand name names and find not another human in sight, nary a moving car no sound to prove kauai still population.
Another to be able to 'get physical,' is by role-playing. It's one thing to listen and repeat a dialogue, but one does have your students speak the dialogue together in front of the class you may have a higher response. One further "get physical" idea is charades or miming.
