The first English class

Listen to a teacher give students information about a new course to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.


Hello, everyone. Hello! It's nice to see you all here. Welcome to British Life and Language. I am your teacher. My name is Lindsay Black. That's L-I-N-D-S-A-Y Black. Before we begin, some information about the class.

Our class is in room 13, on the first floor. When you go upstairs, turn left to find the room. Again, that's room 13.

We have class twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday. Our class begins at 4.30 p.m. and lasts 90 minutes, so we finish at 6 p.m. That's 4.30 to 6. Please arrive on time, OK?

Also, I have an office hour if you have questions. I'm in office 7B on the second floor. My office hour is Friday at 6 p.m. So, if you have any questions or problems or want to talk to me, it's Friday at 6 p.m. in office 7B.

We begin next week, on March the 13th. That's Monday, March the 13th. The course ends on May the 20th. May the 20th is the last day.

I think that's all ... Oh, one more thing. For this course you need the book. Here it is: British Life and Language Level 1 Student's Book. So, please get a copy of the book. I don't want to see any photocopies of the book, thank you! Remember, it's level 1 student's book. Don't buy the teacher's book.

I think that's all, everyone. I look forward to working with you. See you next Monday!



Language level

Beginner: A1


Currently I'm engaged with ALC, it's near to my neighbourhood. We have possibility to choose class's time it is twice a week each class lasts 1h30min or once a week lasts 3 hours. For me I chose the last one at the weekend, because I don't have time at week

yes, I have. I usually go on Mondays and Tuesdays evening. I have English class in the Official School of Languages.

I haven't joined any English class yet. I do self-study in my room.

I don't follow any english course at the present. I am just studying by my self from many sources such as english books ,apps,and websites. I am looking forward to take a course in the high languages Institute

Hello everyone. I have virtual lessons because I am studying my own with the computer. See you soon.

I couldn't catch the meaning of this sentence: "...get a copy of the book. I don't want to see any photocopies of the book"? Please, help me. Thanks a lot.

Hello Maria Lê,

Please get a copy of the book means Please buy the book. We often talk about individual books as copies – in the past when books were made by hand they were literally copied, and we still use terms like copyright in the publishing industry.


When we talk about photocopying a text we say make a copy rather than get a copy.
