    1. Glad you like it, Pavel

  3. Very interesting! It works vocabulary, simple present, simple past. Thanks

    1. Hi Fernanda,
      Thanks for commenting. I’m glad you like the lesson.

  5. I think this lesson looks fantastic to go with an FCE reading lesson in FCE Expert about London. Comparatives have also just been studied in the book. Can also follow up with part 2 speaking and 2 cities scenes.

    1. Hi Brigid,
      Thanks a lot for commenting. Yes, it’d work really well with FCE speaking. I hope your students like it.
      All the best,
      Kieran

  6. Dear Kieran,
    Thank you, it’s a great lesson plan. It works great when teaching present and past habits and also with ‘be/get used to’. After doing the lesson plan, I asked my students to imagine they were Londoners in 1927 that had traveled in time and got stuck in year 2012. They had to explain the differences in their habits and how they had to get used to the new city.
    Best regards!

    1. Dear Irati,
      Thanks a lot for commenting and for the kind words. I really like the way you extended the lesson, sounds great!
      All the best,
      Kieran
