Do you know the difference among the UK, England, Great Britain and the British Isles? If you press here you will be able to find it out.
In order to test your knowledge of the British Isles I recommend you this webpage where you will have the chance of answering the questions of a quiz. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any doubts, have a look at the following map.
Here you have a map with the UK airports. I consider this map very important for you because it will help you locate some of the most important cities in the UK.
Can you remember this? It is the document I included in "useful documents" at the beginning of the course. It was an idea I learned in Glasgow last year and I modified it to suit my students. I hope you find this tool useful because by using it you can review not only all the vocabulary and expressions but also the grammar points we have seen in class throughout the course.
The project was like this:
A PASSENGER SURVEY AT BARAJAS AIRPORT
Good morning/afternoon/evening. I’m a student of Travel Agencies / Tourism at Hotel Escuela High School, Madrid. We are doing a project about why people travel. Would you mind answering a few questions? If you don’t mind, we would like to record the interview as a class practice. Thanks a lot.
POSSIBLE QUESTIONS: CHECK-IN/DEPARTURE AREA
1. Where are you from?
2. Where are you travelling to?
3. How long have you been here?
4. Have you been in Spain before?
5. Where did you stay? (Accommodation)
6. What was the purpose of your visit?
7. How often do you travel abroad? Which countries have you visited?

Thanks for your help. Have a nice trip.

The first one is related to prepositions of time. You can have a look at the explanation (very graphic) and do the exercise below which has to do with travel. http://www.grammar-quizzes.com/preps_time.html.
The second one has to do with using prepositions for time and place. It is prepositions in context because you have a text to fill in about Michael Phelps, an Olympic swimmer. http://www.grammar-quizzes.com/preps_paragraph.html.
If you are more interested in prepositions you can press the different options at the top of the page.
