  • Maps
  • Newspapers / free Metro newspaper (for TV listings, horoscopes (which are good to practice the future tense), weather reports etc)
  • Menus
  • Audio or video recordings of locals or your pupils talking about a specific topic from the above lists (for example, getting pupils to talk about their school timetable, and favourite subjects etc.)
  • Photographs (of your town, maybe during a local festival or at Easter, if it is celebrated in your area)
  • Video guide to landmarks in your town or local area
  • Recipes
  • Links to music which is currently popular in your host country
