End of the school year - Some activities using digital tools (and revising grammar!)
School is almost over... We've been working hard and now we need to relax! Let's think about the school year just spent together. What did I learn? Did I enjoy my lessons and my teachers?

(for your presentation) Prezi (to tell about your journey) Tour Builder Enjoy your holidays and always...
