  • It was really amazing the effect on my students. They felt transported to Camden, where they have never been but I always tell them it´s unique. I could do a lot of speaking, and they learnt new colloquial expressions.

  • Definitely something a little different from the usual listening/speaking exercises. My upper-intermediate students liked it, once they got past the initial reservations at the presence of a ghost.

    Looking forward to next week's installment.
