  • This article is very difficult to use when the students have no idea of the programmes mentioned and cannot view them as not living in the UK (even on the web)

  • Hello Cheryle,

    Thank you for your comment. The programmes mentioned in this article are American and are fairly widely known across the world. If you think your students may be unfamiliar with them, it may be worth explaining briefly what they are about. Trailers can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhesaQXLuRY (Breaking Bad) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8x3HAhDXtU (The Wire) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUHlMgJxF30 (Mad Men)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY0qzXi5oJg (Orange is the New Black)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJTonrzXTJs (The Handmaid's Tale)

    We hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

    The onestopenglish team
