This listening exercise is based on an interview we did with Fiona McDonald from Scotland.  She grew up in Edinburgh and speaks with a gorgeous Scottish accent.<

Fiona talks about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and how it became so popular. We also talk about independence from England and how that impacts the Scots.

The teaching materials include an MP3 version of the interview, plus a glossary, comprehension questions, their answers, a lesson plan for TEFL teachers, plus a full transcription, all in PDF format, located here.
