  8. 8. A True Story It was a weekday and I only had 45 minutes to get to an office in downtown Buenos Aires to pick up a document. I decided to record the event with cameras and microphones to see if I could make educational use of my trip. The result is this course which I separated into 4 instances of my trip. In each episode, I focus on a different topic related to travel and traffic. At the end, you find out if I make it to my destination on time. Along the way, students have a chance to learn and practice idioms, phrasal verbs and collocations, along with real speaking patterns.
