December 2020 – Game show sample video

Dear Teacher,

The first Tune Into English Game Show was held on the 3rd November with the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas de Palencia, Spain. You can watch video extracts from the show here, and see the students’ comments here. In these difficult times this is the ideal motivator for your classes – I look forward to meeting you and your students virtually this year!
