  • Hi there,

    Thanks for your feedback. Glad to hear you like these lessons. Your feedback has been passed on to the design team and we will see if it is possible to make the changes to the font. Regarding an Australian version, that is not something we have considered for Absolute Beginners. There are not really enough differences at that level to warrant making country-specific versions.

    However, if you need a fun resource for slightly higher level learners about Australia, why not check out our Wild Australia lessons?

    Best wishes,
    The onestopenglish team

  • This is a fantastic resource. I am sure I will use all the units. Just starting at Unit 1.

    Just a couple of points so far.
    The number 9. Can I suggest you consider changing that to a straight line - rather than the curly bit at the bottom.
    Also - am a bit concerned about having Absolute beginners at the top - especially so bold. I am teaching adults (refugees mainly) and this is a bit off-putting.
    As I go I will have to modify your materials as I am in Australia - have you ever considered doing an Aussie version?
    Finally - the girl and the woman - to me they are very similar. I had to look twice to decide which was which.. How about making the picture more obvious?
    These are nitpicking. I love this material.

  • Hi,
    On unit 2 absolute beginners ( flash card for printing) it mentions that the resource can be downloadable as a pdf from the website. Is there a particular download area on the website or are they from the the lesson plan area ?
