Sarah very kindly emailed me to say the countries had been mixed up on the printable lesson plans for “Where are you from?” Thank you very much for letting me know, hopefully they should be fixed now. (I’m always happy to hear about mistakes on the site!)
We do have different versions for different areas, for example the Thai government obviously wanted Thailand including in theirs, and the India schools wanted India (the kids go mad for it!), as well as the British Council wanting “Britain” instead of “England” for their version.
So I’ve just uploaded a couple of different mixes on to the Where are you from? page. They work great for catching your kids out after you’ve done the CD version. Just play the new version and get them to figure what the new countries are. It’s great listening practice, and it’s great if you have any know-it-all kids in the class.
Want your country included?
If you want a version for where you are, put a message into the comments below, any country that has more than 4 votes will get included in your own new version, only one vote per person though! : )
(You can of course get your friends to vote!)
