Lessons in the "media" Category

New lesson layout and new video lessons!

Today, let’s talk about this English lesson! Let me explain further. You are learning English. Some of you will learn it through these lesson plans. I have introduced two major changes to these lesson plans.

Firstly, they have shrunk in size from eight to four pages. This makes them more compact and manageable, especially for a 60 minute lesson, as opposed to a 60-120 minute lesson it was before. It also saves paper! This is important if there is a large group, especially when photocopies are needed!

Tragic suicide after Kate hoax call

Today, let’s talk about the recent hoax telephone call from two Australian DJs to a London hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was staying. The prank has caused a storm of controversy around the world.

The DJs in question are Mel Greig and Michael Christian. In a call to London’s King Edward VII hospital on Tuesday 4th December they posed as the Queen and Prince Charles. They asked about how the Duchess was following her bout of morning sickness as a result of her recent pregnancy.
