and guess the meaning of a specific word.

explained, then students check their knowledge

by reading a real story;

b. High School level

(e) Describe the content of each activity: topic, type,


language level, interface, navigation, user friendliness.

(f) Evaluate each activity in terms of its suitability to

be used in a language class.

Very useful exercises. They are mainly focused on reading comprehension.

However, I would not use them in class because the topic is not something that would attract students attention. The same activities could be used in class with a different topic.Almost all kind of activities should be around

students interests.
