Prison for beginners

Today I'd like you to listen to this podcast, but not all of it! Just listen to the story about the prisoner; it starts 1.48 into the broadcast.

After everyone has heard it, I will then ask you some questions to check your understanding.

I shan't ask if any of you have ever been in prison, but I will ask you to imagine what it would seem like. In Milton, in today's newspaper, people actually paid for the privilege.

Please write a few paragraphs for me about what you would find the most difficult things to cope with if you were in prison.

Do you know about a man here in New Zealand who was recently released?
