  • Any plans to update this one? :) It's a great idea but no teen knows what MySpace is nowadays. I downloaded this for a teen student then deleted it when I realised it was unusable.

  • Hi,
    Please watch this space (this space not MySpace). We will soon be updating a lot of the resources.

  • Hi,
    My classes are usually immigrant mothers with young children. I find your lessons suit them perfectly. They really enjoy the content so thank you so much.

  • Hi Ian,

    Many thanks for your comment. We have taken a review of the Spot On series and agree that, while the lesson plans are still relevant, as the articles are now a few years old they should be free to access for all onestopenglish users. As a result, we have now removed the subscription wall for this series. We hope this is helpful.

    For up-to-date news published weekly, why not try our Guardian news lessons?

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • This is a bit out of date to be putting on a paid site.
