LoukGolf’s video series

LoukGolf has collaborated with us to create an exciting video series following his adventures around Bangkok Thailand. Throughout the videos, LoukGolf introduces key vocabulary on four subjects, exposing students to new English language in context.

We have created four word lists on Cambridge Dictionary +Plus which include all the vocabulary introduced by LoukGolf, and more! After watching LoukGolf’s videos, encourage your students to practice the vocabulary using the word lists and test themselves to see how much they’ve learnt.
