    I really liked this lesson. It was engaging and relatable. Thank you very much. Only thing is Part 5 gives the answers to the question D in Part 4.

    1. Justa

      Yeah, I know. Funnily, 95% of students don’t realize it as they are focused on the task their do (or the video) and it’s only later that they see they had the answers in front of them all the time 🙂

    Hello Justa and Stan. Do you guys think you could turn this lesson into an E-lesson in the near future? I’d really like to use it with my online students. I can use the PDF files of course, but it’s not as engaging.

    1. Stan

      Near future is here, Regina 🙂 I’ve just added an e-lesson plan version of this lesson. Enjoy!

    Thank you! 🙂

    Hi there – in exercise 3 the word ‘mistake’ should be ‘mistakes’ in order to match ‘make’ to form the required collocation. Thanks.

    1. Stan

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It turned out that we had an old version of pdfs linked there. We’ve updated them to make them match the current style and the e-lesson plan.

    This is just great material! Thank you.

    I thought my group wouldn’t like this lesson because they’re old adults, turns out, they loved it. Nice job guys!

      Thanks! Great to hear that!
