  • Hi bartonim,

    Thanks for your feedback. Joe and the Doctor was removed from the site as it was felt that it might be offensive to some people. However, if you would like a copy of the lesson then please let us know and we can send it to you.

    Best regards,

    The onestopenglish team

  • Whatever happened to Joe and the Doctor? I lost that one when my computer crashed. Any chance it'll appear again? That was the best of the 'Joe' lessons!

  • not as good as other lesson plans by Chris. Far too many difficult sentence constructions for E1 learners.
