This advanced-level story is about two writers who were once friends. Their lives have taken very different directions since they left university. One has become a successful novelist; the other is poor and out of work. An advertisement in the paper brings the two together in a new relationship, one that brings to light quite a few uncomfortable truths about the two men.The story is told in eight parts; each part contains audio and an accompanying lesson plan written by Ceri Jones, which includes teacher’s notes, student worksheets and a full transcript and glossary. 

In this lesson plan by Ceri Jones, the students will: recall the end of Part 7 and make predictions for the end of the story; listen for attitude and key information; predict the contents and nature of a conversation between the main characters; listen for key information; produce a short summary of the entire story; review the pronunciation points studied so far in the series and read aloud a short extract from the story.
