  • Cultural webquest – online version!

    Posted by claire on 20 March, 2011

    Have you seen the webquest all about San Francisco? Well, make sure you check it out!

    Now, harnessing the power of the ‘click through’ – the webquest can be used in class and is perfect for classes with whole-class projection systems and use of the internet – since it is now a web page in itself!

    If you still prefer the paper version, or would like to use both, don’t fear, you can still download the webquest as a PDF along with teacher’s notes too!

    We’d love to hear what you think about the webquests, or if you’ve made any yourselves to go along with Inspiration. Drop us a line, in the comments section below.

    We hope that you like the new-look Inspiration website!

    We’ve kept all the fantastic resources that were on the original site but made them more accessible for you!

    Here are some of the things not to miss on the new site:

    *Inspiration portfolios – one for each level, and written in accordance with the CEFR

    *Grammar worksheets – for that bit of extra practice on those tricky language concepts

    *Culture worksheets – bringing new perspectives and cultural information into the classroom

    *Language companions – with translated wordlists and audio tapescripts

    *Mapping documents – mapping Inspiration to the CEFR and the PET exam

    We hope you’ll enjoy using this website and we’d welcome any suggestions or comments you would like to leave for us below.  (We won’t publish your email address – it’s just for security.)

    Have fun!
