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.

We've all seen movies where everyone runs away from the big wave...everything gets destroyed and the hero survives and saves the day! But is this what happens in real life?

In this class, students will learn the causes of Tsunamis and as well as considering if they can be prevented. Examples will be used which students can refer to in future assessments. 

This is a great class for students wanting to revise the topic but also for those who haven't yet covered the subject and are keen to get ahead.
