IN THIS LESSON
ID: 2967 Upper Intermediate
This lesson is all about getting a haircut. It's designed to ease Intermediate learners into the upper levels so might seem a bit easier than normal. Getting the exact haircut that you want can sometimes be challenging, and might require some specialized language that you don't even know at the higher levels. Usually, it's best to take a picture of the style you want to avoid any confusion. For a fun elementary video lesson of Fiona getting a haircut, check out this YouTube video Photo by rtdphotography
