I made a little mini-film about Christmas in London. I wanted to give you a taste of what my beautiful city is like in the magical month of December. Use this video to improve your listening, as an activity in class or simply to learn a bit more about British culture.
I'd love to hear about the things you like doing at Christmas so please comment below!
Thank you to Lucas Rishi Gurnani Serrano for filming and editing this video. Lucas is a talented and passionate photographer, producer and editor from Madrid, Spain, who currently lives and works in London. It was a pleasure to work with him and I completely recommend his services.

- Can you recommend any books that will help me improve my English?
I always recommend 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' (https://goo.gl/7vGLDY)
as it is written in the first person from the point of view of an autistic teenager and it does not use very complicated language. Some of it is also based in London which I like.
- Can you recommend a British TV Series for me to watch and improve my British English pronunciation?
Absolutely! I highly recommend 'Broadchurch' (https://goo.gl/5qdWbJ)
which is a FANTASTIC crime drama based in a small village in the South of England. The actors are brilliant and it has won lots of awards!
