Activities including charting, graphs and writing in role provide a supportive context for a first introduction to this fascinating aspect of language.

Important information about using a Video PDF

PDFs with embedded video clips are large files (up to 350MB) and could take some time to download.
Video PDFs must be opened in Adobe Reader 9 or above. Download this free program here

To play video clips embedded in PDFs, you need Flash installed and Adobe Reader 9 or above. 

If after installing both programs and opening the file in Adobe Reader 9 or above, you continue to get an error message saying ‘Flash Player is not installed’, follow the instructions in this document

Alternatively, download the zipped folder of .flv files and play them using vlc media player. (If you are using Windows 10 or above, this seems to be the best solution.)
