The Story of Stuff Project Story of Stuff external link If your English is at the Upper Intermediate level, make sure you watch a few of the Story of Stuff Project videos. You can download them for free on their site, and you can get loads of interesting ideas to work on the presented topics and also to share it and contribute thus to consciousness-raising. Although you will find the videos translated into different languages, don't be a chicken! And don't use the subtitled version for the hearing-impaired, unless you are in that case! Help your ear become used to deciphering English in real life, and only resort to the subtitled version in English once you have trained your ear and your mind in survival techniques!
