I was delighted to see that BBC Learning English has a new course called English at University, aimed at students going to study abroad, since that's a challenge all of my EM Normandie students have to face at some time or other. What's more, Mary, the main character, is going to study business - just like my students, although, of course, they're French not Indian!
A new funny and exciting drama series that brings you the English words and phrases you need to help you through your first year at university. Every week you can follow new student Mary, through her first year of study abroad - at The University of Studies – that's the UK's thirty-second best university - where she's been offered a place to study for a degree in Business.
As usual with BBC courses you get a downloadable PDF with the transcript and a separate audio file, which is great for listening to as a podcast. In case you were wondering, Mary and her family have Indian accents, so we can assume they are living in India, although it's not actually stated.
