Live from ... authentic video lessons

A series of innovative video lessons featuring authentic interviews. We went out and about in London asking members of the public a series of questions and recorded their answers. Each video comes with a set of lesson ideas plus a worksheet with a transcript of each interview for you to use in class.

  • Hello Ruth,

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are so pleased that you have liked this series. Unfortunately we don't, at present, have any plans to add any more videos. However, should we receive many requests for these materials then this is something we may reconsider.

    Best wishes and happy teaching!

  • Hi Christine,

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble accessing the materials. Could you give us a bit more detail? Are you trying to access the videos?

    If so you'll need to click on one of the topics on this page and the video should appear at the top. If you can't see it, it might be a Flash issue and we would recommend you check your browser settings to make sure onestopenglish is enabled for Flash.

    Or you could download the video at the bottom of the page (the page you clicked on from here).

    If it's an issue with your account (i.e it's saying you're not subscribed), perhaps try clearing your browsing history and then logging in again. That might help.

    If any of this doesn't help you then please contact help@macmillan.com

  • Hi Cinzia,

    Thanks for your feedback. Your comments have been passed on to our commissioning team. The videos are indeed a popular series as they provide authentic answers from members of the public. Would you be interested in videos if the content was scripted rather than authentic? With authentic answers, it's hard to guarantee lower level answers. Do let us know your thoughts.

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • I teach 11-13 children and I would really like a lower language level ...I like the videos because they are not cartoons -as most of the lower language ones are. Thanks anyway!!
