    Did you check out the Live from London 'Money' video linked? That's a video with real Londoners talking about money, which may be of more interest to you. It comes with an accompanying short worksheet.

    Our 'Language for...' series also has a lesson on using money when travelling, which might be of interest if you're teaching about international currencies:
