Ebook: “Language Detective Academy” Ewa Torebko
“Language Detective Academy” has been written to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the death of Agatha Christie (1890-1976), but of course can be used at any time. It is a collection of 16 language tasks that can be used with students at B1-B2 levels. All the tasks can be mixed and matched as the teacher sees fit. All of them can be used independently of each other or as a series of connected tasks. Ideas on how to use the tasks can be found below.
The idea is that the students are attending a detective academy where they are learning different language skills needed for their graduation. They can earn various badges for doing different tasks.
