  • Hi there,

    Many thanks for the positive feedback. Apologies if the level of the language in the video was a bit difficult for your students. All the answers in both the audio and video resources in this series are authentic and unscripted, taken from native and non-native speakers. The idea of basing the content on authentic answers if to directly reflect how students will encounter the language in everyday life.

    Please do let us know if there are any other topics that you'd be interested in seeing new lessons on.

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • Hi
    Very good resource! I have used this lesson in two of my classes and they enjoyed it.
    The video is just a little hard to understand, otherwise, tops.
    Thanks

  • Hi Muhamed,

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback. It's great to hear that you are finding this series so useful. As it happens, the fourth lesson in this series is on language to use at the airport and lesson 7 is about food and eating out.

    Your feedback has been passed on to the authors and we will look at incorporating some of your suggestions in future lessons.

    Keep up the good work and best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • I love this series. This is exactly the kind of situational contexts that foreign language learners might end with when going abroad.

    Please can we have more of such situations? Such as: being at the airport, going through college brochures or syllabuses, buying tickets at stations, or even going to a restaurant.

    It makes our job as teachers more stimulating and helps keep the learner motivated to learn more.
    Thank you.
    Mo Hassan
