  • Hi Jenni,

    Thanks for your feedback. We do try to make sure that the majority of our lessons are not time-sensitive but as you rightly point out, some of the lessons in this section are a bit outdated. Where possible, we will try to update the materials. In the meantime, why not use that lesson to introduce the past simple/used to? Maybe you could get students talking about things that were once in fashion but have now gone out of fashion?

    If you are teaching a teens class, why not use some lessons from our Impressions series:

    Or they might also enjoy some of our news lessons which are available at 4 levels.

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • Hello, is it possible for you to update soem of the lessons in this section?

    I like the idea of "Getting Connected" but it was written in 2008! 9 years ago, My Space is gone and teenagers are only interested in what is current now!

    These lessons are so useful, but can´t be used once they are out of date.

    Thanks for giving this your consideration

    Jenni Wain
