      I've added some instructions. Here's a link to the post, which is on Edmodo, but I've made it public so you should be able to see it:
      https://britishcouncilamigo.edmodo.com/post/243983487

      I've got a copy of the original CD, and would like to see the British Council put the whole thing on the internet. There were 32 tracks originally and I think it would be a useful pronunciation resource.

      On http://www.speakenglish.co.uk/phrases/travelling_by_air you have to click on the sentences to hear them, but at http://www.languageguide.org/english/vocabulary/travel/ you only have to move your mouse over the pictures and here http://www.fonetiks.org/engsou6.html moving your mouse over the phrases plays the audio. I'd like the last style, but would still be happy with the first!

      Great resources! Thanks a lot. Would like to share an idea on using the dialogues in the classroom but the link doesn't seem to appear on the page.
