Hong Kong series: My Hong Kong

We start here a new series of videos which are suitable for Básico 2 and Intermediate 1 students.

The videos have been made by teachers at The British Council in Hong Kong, and deal with aspects of their life there like their routine, hobbies, family, favourite food, career, trips and so on.

The first video on the series is entitled My Hong Kong and it features several teachers' opinions about the city. These are the questions they answer:

When did you come to Hong Kong?
Which places do you like about Hong Kong?
Do you find anything unusual here?

No real task beyond understanding the teachers' answers to the questions above. You will get plenty of help with understanding through the highlighted phrases you will be able to see on screen.

Once you have watched the video two or three times and you are familiar with the information the teachers convey, try to improve your English pronunciation by freezing the screen and echo some of the phrases on screen.
