Kaleidescope is a project that mixes video and original pieces of writing from well-known authors in three capital cities – Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh. The package consists of a piece of poetry or prose, which looks at the city from an insider’s point of view. A simple movie accompanies the writing to help the language learner understand lexical or cultural items that require explanation.

Each pack includes teacher’s notes with a suggested procedure and classroom worksheets for students. These resources include pre-viewing and follow-up tasks.

The focus of this pack is Belfast. It includes an original piece of writing by Eunice Yeates called Belfast.

Hope that helps,

sorry, I am probably very dumb, but I can't find the video anywhere?

Veronique

Not at all!
You should see an embedded video just below the image of the map of Belfast - if you click on the play icon, the video should play. If you can't see the embedded video, you might need to update your web browser, or try using a different web browser. Please let us know if you are still having problems.

Best wishes,
Cath

thanks, but I can't update my browser as it is the computer from work. Is there any other way of getting the video?

Veronique

Hi again Veronique

Our videos are only available for watching from the site, and can't be downloaded unfortunately. Can you see the embedded video on the page? It is that it won't play or is it not there at all?

Thanks,
Cath

I have it on my computer at home but not on the school computer and , as you said, I couldn't download it...It is not there at all.
Regards,
Véronique

Hi Veronique
So it sounds like it is an issue with the browser on your school computer. Other than updating or changing your internet browser, I am not sure that you will be able to access the video if the browser does not support it. Sorry about that.

Best wishes,

Cath
