  • When I right-click the audio files, they are downloaded as a webpage, not as an MP3 file. What can I do?
    Thank you

  • Hi Jan,

    Thanks for pointing that out and apologies for the confusion.

    I've corrected the teacher's notes so that the table says 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and I've corrected the 'Working with language' activity on the worksheet so that it also says 1, 2, 3 ,4, 5.

  • In the teacher's notes, the table refers to Holidays A,B,C, etc. whereas in the students' version of the table Holidays 1,2,3, etc. are referred to.
    Also, in the students' version, in the next section "Working with the language", the questions refer to Text A etc. whereas the photos are Photo A, B,C,D, and E, but the texts are numbered.
    it's a nice lesson and worked well, but these errors caused some confusion.

  • Great lesson plan - thanks. I did note however that picture E is of a TGV, which is France's fast inter-city train, but that this corresponds to the description about taking a slow train ride over the Oberalp pass. It was a bit confusing for my students when they were trying to describe the picture.

  • Apologies for the late reply. The numbers (1-5) refer to the texts and the letters (A-E) refer to the pictures. We can't see any mix-up, however do please let us know if you do have any comments to make about this lesson.

  • The text & pictures referred to mix up the a,b,c,d & e with 1,2,3,4 & 5. On both teacher notes & lesson.
