|London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. There
you can find places like the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the
London Eye; but, did you know that:
London is the most populous city in the European Union with a population of 7.7 million?
More than 300 languages are spoken?
There are 13 ethnic groups?
Is the 4th city in the world by number of millionaires?
Has the oldest and largest metro system in the world, dating from 1863?
We are going to get to know it better and you will discover new sites to enjoy this city. Perhaps you will visit it soon!
To give an oral presentation of the different museums, art galleries, monuments and places you have explored. You will use PowerPoint tool.
London is a large city, so we are going to divide it in four parts, and we will discover its wonderful sites little by little. Let´s go for number one!First, we are going to organise the teams and their tasks. You will be in twos and the places to explore and the pages to visit are:
The Houses of Parliament and the Big Ben
The Tate Gallery
The London Zoo
The Victoria and Albert Museum
The British Museum
The Natural History Museum
And, why not? ...Shopping in London
As you know there is a lot of information in museums and historical buildings, so to make things easier you are going to fill in a grid which includes the following questions:
For monuments/historical buildings
Short history/ interesting facts about it
Photographs of the place
For museums, art galleries and London Zoo
Structure of the place: how it is organised
Your favourite room/area
Photographs of the building and the room/area you have chosen. Remember that you have to explain why this is your choice.
For the shopping team:
Name of the most important department stores in the area
Your favourite one and its structure
Photographs of the place
But still there are two people left. This team is going to organise a 3-day tour for all of you, and will be our tour guides:
First, you will have to create a chart of each place which includes:
Transport, how to get there.
Prices and discounts (students and groups)
Secondly, you will organise a two days tour including:
Places to visit in the morning
Places to eat and have a rest (e.g. parks)
What to do in the afternoon
You will show the itinerary on a London Map and also photographs of the places to rest and eat.

The different tasks will be given to the teams by lot, so GOOD LUCK! You may always negotiate your luck, though.
