Listening Module 11 - Western Front Battlefields - Part 2

Interactive Listening Modules on VOLLS
25 July 2014

Two interactive listening modules which focus on the Western Front Battlefields of WW1, are available on VOLLS on the Pathways link. They are especially pertinent at the moment as we commemorate the centenary of the start of the great war. The listening modules 10 and 11 are based on an interview with a flight lieutenant who organised a study tour to the Western Front Battlefields in France and especially to the town of Villiers-Bretonneux which was liberated by Australian soldiers in 1918
