Top tips

Other levels

Although we’ve set this lesson as a specific level, you could easily use it with other levels. You could make it more difficult by offering less support through the Pre-listening activities, or get them to listen to it completely and then answer the comprehension questions.


For students with listening difficulties, use our “stop-start” method. This involves playing small sections of the audio file for students to try to capture the meaning of.

Remember, as part of the Learn Hot English method, we recommend three rounds of listening / viewing:

  1. Listen once without stopping for a general understanding (listening for gist).
  2. Then, listen again to answer comprehension questions, this time pausing if/when necessary.
  3. Finally, listen a final time, but this time reading the script at the same time.


Remind students that any discussion questions are simply a means to get them speaking. Students are free to invent information if necessary, or if they think the question is too “personal”. The questions are simply there to get students speaking. The actual information is secondary.

For lots more great material like this, we recommend The Pack for Teachers.
