This lesson plan for teachers of teenagers and adults at level B1 and above explores the theme of Scotland and cultures. Students will develop their knowledge of Scotland and practise their listening skills.

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.

Dear Nik Peachey,
Thank you for your sharing a leson plan for Scotland as I and my students had a wonderful summer course in July,2010 in Dundee-Scotland. I applied this plan for them and they commented positively and it motivated me to prepare different cultures as well.
