Rather than questions, you can easily insert images to match with words – it is a very flexible resource. There are a number of different shapes that you can choose – each one requires a different number of questions – I started with the hexagon, needing 30 questions, but I realised that might be a bit ambitious You can download the program free from this link: Useful links: En un evento recente del Subject Learning Coach network nos mostraron un herramiento que se llama Tarsia.
