This is one of the school meals which Martha Payne photographed for her blog. She had carrot soup, pasta with meat and vegetables and more carrot, and yoghurt. Today we visit Scotland, to find out what a Scottish schoolgirl thinks of her school meals. And because the European Cup Football matches have reached an interesting stage, and poor old England have been knocked out by Italy, this might be a good time to learn a new football expression. Martha Payne is 9 years old. She lives in a small community in Scotland called Lochgilphead. Martha is interested in the food at her school. Children in other schools, and in other countries, started to read Martha’s blog. And at this point, the bureaucrats who run the education system in the part of Scotland where Martha lives became aware of her blog. Martha’s headteacher told Martha the bad news, and Martha was sad and wrote a final blog post to say goodbye to her many readers. I like stories with a happy ending. Categories podcasts Tags

It is based on the listening from Breaking News English which you can find here. I decided to do something different from what the lesson plan on the website suggested, and devise my own procedure, taking into account the 15 listening tips I wrote about last month: “Planning a listening lesson – 15 tips”, which try to take you beyond the standard CELTA approach. First, please read through the lesson plan below and identify which of the 15 listening tips I used when designing the lesson procedure.

English Short Stories – Simple and Illustrated Improve your English with English short stories. This is the fun way! Important Note Make sure you start with stories at your level, and go gradually up. Do not start with difficult stories that you can't really understand, OK? Alice, Chapter 1: Down the Rabbit-Hole Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Many parents find that Alice is pretty tricky to read out aloud – and for good reason. The voice shifts subtly all the time between Alice and the narrator. Incredible fancies and whimsies fly around the head of Alice, while the events of Wonderland are even more out of the way. Reality slips down the middle somewhere. 20 SITES TO IMPROVE YOUR LISTENING Listening is difficult for most learners.
