Teacher comment

"This was the first time that I had embedded multimedia into a flipchart - I like the way it turned out. Doing this means that you can more easily show the learners something and have supporting materials alongside what you are showing."

Learner comments

"The listening about pub quizzes was interesting - we don't really have them here, so it was new to me."
