An original cartoon in simple intermediate English
MacBrawn, our friends from Scotland.....
heroes live in a small town somewhere near Glasgow, in Scotland.
MacBrain teaches maths in a high school, and MacBrawn... well
it's never been quite clear what he does, but he is one of the
non-teaching staff in the same high school. The two share a house, and
will go on doing so until - one day perhaps - MacBrain finds the lady
of his life....
A Walk in the Hills.

Using story cartoons in class.Cartoons like this make excellent supports for creative language work.
The most simple classroom activity is to have students describe the story in their own words; this can be done either as an individual task, as group work, or as oral work in class.
Other possible exercises with this particular cartoon : tell the story from the dog's point of view.
