This is material from a series of lessons I did on London with classes who had a pretty low level of English.
The first lesson was on monuments/landmarks in the capital and consisted of a powerpoint (London_1.pptx) and a worksheet (London_1_worksheet.docx). It also covered basic adjectives (big, small, old, new..).
These resources are from a lesson I did on large English speaking cities (specifically, London, Manchester, Sydney, LA, New York).
Firstly, a powerpoint with maps and basic facts: Big City PWP.pptx
Secondly, this document contains descriptions of the above cities and was used for a reading comprehension activity: City Information
Finally, here are the videos I used to introduce the cities: Video Links
