Remember that there may be other possible answers, but doing an activity online means that the program will only accept the answer that I introduced as the solution.

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!!!!

According to the latest data recorded in 2018, Spain reached a peak in food waste, squandering a total of 1,339 million kg/l of food and beverages. This number represents an increase of 8.9% over the previous year and seems to be mainly due to economic recovery that was experienced during the spring and summer of the same year.

People are not aware of the social, environmental and economic impact that wasting food generates and that making the right decisions concerning food consumption, will only be possible if citizens are informed on all these negative aspects.

Here you will find an open cloze activity for Upper Intermediate to Advanced that gives some tips on how to be more sustainable within the household concerning food and bevarage.
