ESL Worksheets - Encounters in the UK

Encounters in the UKThe EnglishClub video Encounters in the UK is the 7th and final film in this documentary mini-series. It tells the story of four girls from different countries who travel to Cambridge in England to study English and stay with local families in what is called a "homestay" arrangement. In the film, we also meet several of the host families as well as a consultant who helps match homestay students to families. For the four girls the homestay arrangement is a positive experience. As one of the hometay hosts explains: "It's going to be a great experience, not only in terms of learning English, but in learning about life."

The Student Worksheet above consists of six activities to be done before, during and after the video. You can choose to do some or all of the activities. If you do all activities, you may wish to split them over two lessons. The Teacher's Notes give detailed guidance and answers.

The Optional Quiz is printable direct from the webpage and includes answers for the teacher (which will be stripped out when printed).
