WELCOME TO OUR CONSOLIDATION SKILLS PAGE

INSTRUCTIONS:

Dearest students,

Today we are going to practice some more English, using authentic materials (real materials in English). You will have to complete two tasks. Please read the instructions to both tasks first, before starting.

Task 1 is based on a text (please see instructions for Task 1 below).

Task 2 is based on a video (please see intructions for Task 2 below).

You will have the chance to learn some new vocabulary in context and to check your understanding of the materials by answering questions.

Good luck and have fun!

For this task, you will read a text I have chosen for you. This text will give you the opportunity to learn some new English words in context. After reading the text, I would like you to answer the questions I have prepared for you (to the right of the text).
