Information for teachers
Issues reading material
Most units contain several pages of information and stories. Help
with difficult vocabulary is given on-screen.
Fact files on individual countries, with maps and flag.
There is a separate page with useful vocabulary arranged alphabetically;
this page can also be called up as a small window while students are
reading about any of the countries.
These contain interactive activities that learners can do by themselves.
(Hence "Inter-activities": interactive + activities)
on the issues
Just for fun: a way for learners to see what they know about
a topic. (They do not test the units)
Learners try to figure out the words letter by letter before
they run out of guesses. In issue-related quizzes, the words are
taken from the units.
Learners can read what other learners
A good chance for learners to read real English from other learners.
(Spelling is corrected in the letters; otherwise there is only
minor editing to make the meaning clear.)
