Dear America Letters Home From Vietnam Worksheet Answers
Dear America Letters Home From Vietnam Worksheet Answers – This worksheet was made by me. Includes a reading and writing exercise about a woman on vacation in a foreign country. She describes some of the places she visited and what she did on her vacation. The grammar focus of this worksheet is far from simple. The reading contains two exercises, one is multiple choice and the second is a true and false exercise. Also, in the written exercise students must make use of linking words that were already taught during the previous lessons before I gave this assignment. However, if you prefer, you can start inserting the links while teaching the studs how to write postcard letters.
The downloadable booklet above is recommended for middle school and adults at Primary (A1) and Pre-Intermediate (A2) levels. It aims to embed the Past simple tse in the language and is useful for strengthening your class’s reading and writing skills. It focuses on the theme of the Holidays.
