Linda SalmHost: Linda has been teaching in a London secondary school for the past 17 years. She teaches both Geography and History and makes learning enjoyable for all students.

Some people leave beautiful hot countries with gorgeous sandy beaches to live in cold chilly places. Others move from the wonderful countryside to the busy noisy cities. Why do people make these decisions? In this class, students will consider some of the reasons people migrate alongside the impact migration causes on these areas - both negative and positive. This is a great class for students in Years 7 - 9 wanting to revise the topic or those who are keen to get ahead.
