EDUCATIONAL AUDIO PRODUCTION AND COURSE DESIGN

London Language Courses - how do they work?

There are 3 stages to our London courses:

1. THE AUDIO TOURS

Each interactive audio tour lasts approximately 30 minutes and is graded to a different level for each of the four locations. Told through the eyes of an assortment of friendly characters, the history and culture of London comes alive as the listener is taken on a journey through time.

Camden - Pre-Intermediate to Intermediate
Soho - Pre-Intermediate to Upper Intermediate
South Bank - Intermediate to Advanced
Westminster - Upper Intermediate to Advanced

2. THE INTERVIEWS

Interviews

Each course concludes with an interviewing task where students take to the streets and talk to local residents.

The very nature and content of the tours provides learners with insider knowledge and the confidence to really benefit from this authentic exchange.

3. IN THE CLASSROOM

How it works

Each course comes with a coursebook which includes notes on how to run the tours, activities and a week's worth of lessons for each location; including map routes, student handouts, transcripts and additional ideas.

Lexically and skills driven, lessons are based on the language and themes of the tours with an emphasis on independent learner strategies and natural spoken discourse.
