This lesson is part of a series of plans based on interviews with people from around the UK. It explores a listening text about a part of the UK known as the ‘Black Country’. In the lesson, students have the chance to listen to someone from that area describing what they like about living there and a little about their life. Students also have the chance to reflect on their own part of the world and finally to do some intensive listening.
