Podcast #101 New Exercise Feature

Published in the category General Practice, Lesson Exercises PDF, Special Activities

Lesson Exercises

A new feature has been added to ESL Aloud. These are PDFs that contain lesson exercises. They will come with most of the General Practice lessons. Currently, the PDFs have been added to four lessons. More will be added as time goes on.

Each PDF is divided into three sections. The first is simply the original text of the lesson. In the second section you make choices between two words or phrases. One term is the original one. The other is wrong in some respect. It may be spelled incorrectly. It may be a wrong verb tense. It may be an incorrect preposition. Things like that.

In the third section the original text is changed. In some locations an article or pronoun is missing. In some places the wrong article is used. You can make a correction if you want. But the main task is to mark where the problems are. If your native language is a Slavic or Asian language this section will be particularly helpful.

The PDFs are designed to be printed out. Here is how to access the PDFs. Go to the main page of the ESL Aloud website. Look at the categories on the right. Click on Lesson Exercises PDF. Open one of the PDF lessons that appear. Click on the link Lesson Exercises above the text. The PDF will open up. I suggest that you print it out.
