In this lesson students hear a man being interviewed about his life in London. He talks about the different parts of London he has lived in and how things have changed in these areas. The tasks focus students on learning more about London from Google Maps and images and the listening tasks focus them on reading between the lines of what the man says and understanding inferred meaning. Lastly, the lesson finishes with an optional grammar focus with a speaking activity based around ‘used to’ and ‘didn’t use to’.

I can't see any image. What is the picture in the document?
You should now be able to view the image when you download the lesson plan. Please let me know if you still can't.
Am I mistaken or do we need to BUY premium Apple Quicktime to get the audio? If so shame on the people responsible. Really, is profit what matters in this picture?
We'll get the the image fixed as soon as possible. Thanks for letting us know about the problem. The audio works fine here - it should start automatically when you click on it.

I couldn't either. I can play the audio, but can't see any links to download it.
Even when clicking on the MP3 file, it just takes me straight to VLC player. Does it require any specific music player??
