              yay, I got them all correct and – apparently – I’m top of the leaderboard :yahoo:

              Anyhow, nice activity @sue, Wordwall is a nifty little tool for quickly creating engaging interactions

                  Slightly embarrassingly @zsofit, I did get one wrong:

                  However, in my defense I believe that the one I got wrong was ambiguous and it could have been one of three answers in the slot (unless you’d studied the specific unit): ;-)

                  This is one I’ve done before. It was for checking vocabulary already taught.

                    Not used this before. Just a quick experiment but not good for the actual grammar point as it does not give you the option to accept variations in the sentence order that would be acceptable.

                      @robj yes, this can be one of the limitations of some of these tools is that there can only be one real answer and variations aren’t really possible. There are some other tools we look at later that allow for more flexibility with that, but it is an inherent feature of many of these types of tools. This is where you then have to decide whether this is the right tool for that language point or not, or whether a different one might be more appropriate. Hopefully by the end of this course, you’ll have a range of them available to you so you can select the one that works best.

                        This is a pretty rudimentary attempt, but I am sharing it anyway in the spirit of the course.

                        I had a number of false starts and, for this, just resorted to lifting the exercise itself from a coursebook used on pre-sessional recently.  I was very much concentrating on the mechanics on this occasion – but did note that the underlying thinking is quite flawed.  Alas, the distinction between research and thinking/writing turned out not always to be valid – so I ended up cutting out many of the more ambiguous original options.  The differences still seem rather too subtle and open to opinion, however? I guess it could be pruned right down to avoid any ambiguity?  And maybe such a simple activity could still provide some value as a warmer to promote discussion or further presentation, or as rapid revision.
