Steffi Graf: Overview
This exercise is mainly to practise reading comprehension as well as to test language awareness (word order in questions and parts of speech. The first activity is a True or False. Then, in the second one the student has to write the correct question for the given answers. Something which is really difficult for students at beginner levels! Then, they have to read the text again so as to find certain words (verbs, adjectives and nouns). I hope you like it and comments to improve are more than welcome!!

IMPRESSIONISM
In this online exercise there is a warm up in which students have to match the paintings with the name of the correct artist. Then they have to arrange some letters taken from those names so as to discover the artist they are going to read. After those 2 warm up activities, students have to read so as to do the comprehension activities (true or false and then match the correct heading to the paragraph) Finally, students conjugate the verbs given placing them in the correct blank (this way enhancing comprehension and not just grammar rules). The last activity has to do with vocabulary. Students have to find certain words in the text by reading the definitions given. I hope you find it useful!!
