  • A first comprehension with a new P6/7 class

  • Since my students are really interested in history, I would use it to expand the information that our textbook provides on electricity. It gives an excellent view on electricity history, with a vocabulary that does not prevent them from understanding the whole of the text. Thanks a lot for sharing.

  • I'd like to point out the ambiguity in question 4 on reading comprehension level one. Thomas Edison - and the light bulb. I think it should be reworded as the children are correct in pointing out the confusing phrasing used in the question and the model answer.
