Download our ESOL learning resource  for E3/L1 and functional skills students to learn about your local market and exercise your students' comprehension, speaking and writing skills.

Students will discuss the topics of markets, compare and contrast markets in different countries and different types of market and exercise using new vocabulary for this context. Students will practice key questions and phrases in pairs and complete comprehension tasks to assess their learning. Students will then all use Layers of London to explore London markets and their local market through the various crowd-sourced history, memories, stories and media.

This resource culminates in a class project to interview their local stall-holders about their jobs and their work which is then added to the Layers of London site so others can learn about their local heritage.
