can make a gapped transcription
exercise. Students work in pairs and each has a partially completed
story. One student reads the other student the text (s)he requires

speaking, reading and writing and tests grammatical understanding.
You can also create an exercise by removing
all spaces from a text so that students have to indicate the
start and end of individual words. Other exercises allow you to
make a gapfill exercise
or to remove either
individual letters (e.g. é, è, ê) or words
(e.g. le, la, les) from a text. Clear instructions for the teacher
are available and the next step to be taken is always clearly indicated.
