This lesson takes what students already know about Scotland as its starting point and tries to develop their knowledge and vocabulary, as well as the listening skills. The listening tasks aim to help students understand quite a difficult script by not demanding too much of them. The lesson ends with an intensive listening section followed by a grammar focus on the use of the ‘Present Perfect’ tense to describe things that have changed.
