A Weekend Away / A Week By The Sea

Kevin & Sharon are back!

A Weekend Away and A Week By The Sea were two of the most popular English Language Teaching videos of recent years. They went out of print in 2009, and we have been inundated with requests to make them available. Three Vee has licensed them from Oxford University Press and are pleased to announce that are now availble on remastered DVDs with better picture quality than the original VHS videotapes.

Both A Weekend Away (Starter / Elementary level) and A Week By The Sea (High Elementary / Pre-Intermediate level) are being presented for the first time combined as a single DVD. Remember that a  two-cassette VHS set of each series originally cost in the region of £130. We have always believed that they were too expensive, and this is why the two series together will be available on one DVD at a much, much lower price of £16.50. This gives you sixteen great lessons, with transparent, carefully structured storylines, at approximately £1 per lesson!.

A Weekend Away Study Guide

Some schools may have sets of the original Activity Books. But A Weekend Away has a new Study Guide to accompany the DVD. This is designed for use either in class or at home for self study. It contains:

Step by step activities. Each episode of the DVD has four sections which can be accessed  using the ADVANCE button on your remote control (>> I). The Study Guide is designed around these sections. Each video story has activities for before you watch the video, then activities for watching the story initially.
The story is then exploited in four sections, with BEFORE YOU WATCH, WHILE YOU WATCH and AFTER YOU WATCH activities for each section.

• There are complete Transcripts for each story. These can be used for active correction of the activities on the video.

• There is a Grammar section for each video story.

• There is a list of Expressions and Vocabulary for each story. There is space to add translations of Vocabulary.
