The Audio Tour
Journey through the streets of Camden Town as you head to the biggest market in Europe with your four friendly guides: a punk, an indie boy, a raver and a goth. From music to fashion, the tour takes in everything that's special about Camden with a soundtrack to match, from The Clash to Amy Winehouse. The tour is an exhilarating way to experience the town that wears its heart proudly on its sleeve.
The tour includes an interviewing task where students have the opportunity to mix with market traders and some of the more interesting characters to be found amongst the stalls.The authentic exchange is a great opportunity for students to gain a newfound confidence with their speaking skills.
The lessons are skills based and are associated to the themes and language of the tour. There is a strong focus on fashion vocabulary including general descriptions of appearance, clothing, accessories and of course hair styles! Students encounter colloquial shopping phrases and practice these with personalised dialogues. There is also an email writing task included for students to practice and consolidate all the language looked at in the lessons.
Alongside a range of learner strategies, all new language is supported and personalised by a number of interesting communicative tasks. There is an 'Additional Lessons' section provided to extend lessons over our recommended time period of a week - although please note that the resources are flexible and can be used as a one off experience or even stretched over two weeks. How you choose to run the course is entirely up to you.
