  • Teach in a 6th form college with international students. Most of them have done their GCSE's so looking forward to doing something a bit more chilled with them. Thanks

  • Hi,
    This lesson worked well with both by intermediate and upper intermediate students. We ended up having lots of discussion about the differences between a British Xmas and those elsewhere.

    I am waiting for Episode 2 with impatience!

  • I just did this with my Upper Intermediate uni students today and they really enjoyed it, particularly the part where they had to construct and perform the dialogue. We ran out of time so we didn't do the last speaking activity.

    It would be useful if the lesson plan also includes the estimated duration of the lesson (this took me about 2 whole teaching hours).

  • Just did the first lesson today. I was quite skeptical about using this lesson with my university students here in Beijing, but it's really been one of the best lessons that I've done with them for a long time - students were engaged and interested (no one was playing on their phones during the whole thing), and loved the dialogue writing activity and performances.
