In this section you may find exercises and activities of your interest. I have created them to teach my students. Some are based on authentic material: news, student writings, pages from the web, etc,. You are welcome to save or print and use them as well. You may think that some of the exercises are extremely easy, but, as I am teaching in ESO, obligatory secondary  education, the level of the students is often very low. There are also some exercises more difficult, oriented to Bachillerato students.

Some of the exercises have been designed by some colleagues attending my seminars and courses. I would like to thank all of them. There are also direct links to the pages of INTERLEX, a group of teachers to which I belonged to.

I also would like to thank UVic Humanities Computing and Media Centre for the Hot-potatoes software that I have used in most of the exercises.
