Welcome back, fellow EFL/ESL educators! I hope that the recent installment of the News Quiz did not only engage your students but also offered some valuable learning opportunities. Now, let's delve into a variety of language-focused follow-up activities. 

As in the past few years, these activities come in various formats. You'll find interactive drag'n'drop exercises on LearningApps, a matching activity on WordWall (Advanced level), interactive quiz on Quizizz (Intermediate level) and good old fashioned worksheets in editable Google Docs.

  1. Thank you! It's precious!

    1. You're welcome. Thanks for dropping a line.

  2. Brilliant materials, Leo! I noticed an issue in the key of the phrase match on p8 of the Advanced PDF Review. The verbs in 6 and 7 are swapped. I think 7 should be "brought" Chandler to life and 8 "take an unexpected turn". Thank you for sharing all of the materials. Sometimes, I think it is downhill from here once we've done the News Quiz :)

    1. Thank you so much, Hannah, for leaving a comment and spotting a mistake, which also made me realise that the key on p8 onwards is missing altogether. I'll fix it and reupload. Thanks once again.
