A1 Open cloze ‘My favourite place for a holiday’

My A1 groups were a bit frightened when they saw ‘their first’ open cloze, so I promised that I would post some on the blog so that they could become familiar with this type of activity. Here’s the first one (and I hope, not the last).

Remember to read the text very carefully. Think about the missing word before writing it in the blank. and check for spelling errors. Once you have the grade, see which answers were not correct and think about the reasons. Making mistakes is how you learn more, so don’t be afraid to make them. Let me know how it went!!!!
