Living in the UK

Level: Intermediate / Upper Intermediate

In this lesson, learners read about the different countries of the UK, either online as a webquest or in paper form. They practise reading for specific information, and guessing the meaning of words from the context, both important reading micro-skills. There is an optional extension in the form of a role-play, in which groups of learners compete to persuade a professional couple to move to 'their' UK country.
