Live from London: Money

Level: Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, Upper intermediate, Advanced Type: General lesson plan, Video Video material

Set in Kings Cross, London, this video includes interviews with Londoners talking about money.


If you’re teaching general English, you can use this video alongside the Everyday life lesson Money talks.

Note: If your device isn’t Flash compatible, then click on the link under ‘Related files’ at the bottom of the page to download the video. You can then play it through the media player on your device (e.g. iTunes).

We’ve put together a video for you to use as part of a money-themed lesson. Get your students’ attention by playing the video as a warmer, and then after a few comprehension questions, ask your students to discuss the same questions in pairs or small groups.

Below, you can find an editable transcript and worksheet with exercises to use with your class, along with the video to download and use offline.

For further ideas for how you can use these videos, have a look at the Live from London lesson ideas page.

  • Hi Souhila,

    I'm very sorry to hear you're having trouble downloading the videos.

    If you have internet in the classroom, you could use the video player on the page (I'm just letting you know this as I know that on some browsers the player doesn't show up - you need to view it with a browser that supports Flash, like internet explorer.)

    Otherwise, could it be your internet speed? We tried to reduce the video file sizes as much as possible, but they are still quite large. You could try closing down all the programmes running on your device except the download, or use an internet accelerator to increase the speed.

    f you're still having trouble with the videos, please email and someone will get in touch to try and solve the issue with you. Sorry for the inconvenience!
