The materials accompanying this pack are designed to be used with higher level (B2+) students.

Each pack in this series includes an audio recording of the photographer talking about their photo, together with a complete downloadable lesson plan on how to exploit the image and the audio. There are downloadable student worksheets and a full-size copy of the image.

In this lesson, students are asked to do the following:

  • to practise language chunks (idioms, fixed phrases etc.)
  • to listen for specific information
  • to focus on sentence stress (Speaking and Pronunciation skills)
  • to write and tell a story based on an image (Writing and Speaking)

Thanks for the comment - it looks like the link in the lesson plan is not working - I will take a look at it. In the meantime, if you click directly on the 'Play' icon on the black audio bar, you can listen to the audio. You can also right click on the bar to save it to your computer. Hope that helps, Cath

Thanks for that, on the black audio bar it says 'Error: Playback audio was aborted'. Could this be because my school uses an old version of Internet Explorer?

Hello I have tried the audio on Firefox and Microsoft Edge and neither work.  It's not possible to listen to it in any way!  Is this going to be fixed?

Sorry that you are having problems with this. I have uploaded the file again. If you click on the audio file in the downloads (not on the player), you should be able to open the file, and either listen to it directly or download it to your device.

Let us know if you are still having problems.
