I have used it in my class. My students like it a lot. They especilally like interviewing part. Talking aboout their future, being rich was fun for them. They always like to talk about personal things.

This was a great lesson but I need to add a oral component.

So, I had my students make a podcast of the article they made with Worksheet 3. I guess I couls have had them record the interview as well, but this way they a had time to practice before recording.
