Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
It is highly motivating and it encourages active language use, combining reading, comprehension, and conversational skills.
But the activity is more suitable for a one-student class – since the quiz is taken online. Though it could be modified for larger classes – up to four students, with each student reading out and answering one question – and others could compare their answers…
