elementary or intermediate? - that is the question
I use this sometimes when I get a new group and Iīm not sure about their knowledge level. It can also be used for revision or as a test, but I sometimes just use it to play games with it. It helps me assess the level, because it covers some basic things, but also checks some vocabulary finessing, spelling problems and tenses. Try it!
