The resource was tested with A2 students in a foreign language context. It was crucial to revise vocabulary structures such as jobs, family, meals, food, daily routines, and weekends ‘routines’, the weather and how it might influence people’s routines in the summer and especially in the winter, interests and hobbies, weekdays, personal determiners, present simple tense of some verbs (eat, work, start, do, talk, there to be, bring, etc.), adverbs of place, quantifiers (a, an, some, any), the time and how it can be organised throughout the day, conjunctions (and, but). Oral and written practice using the vocabulary and grammar structures is also advisable.
Then the students are told to read through the paragraph quickly, ignoring the spaces. After that quick reading they should be able to answer the following question, ‘What is the paragraph about?’
As the text provides a considerably number of spaces, it is suggested a division from 1-15 and then from 16-27. The first half might be done and corrected along with the group of students. However, the second half should be faced as an individual task and at the end the students are questioned about the options they took. If the option chosen happens to be wrong, the reason is explained with examples collected among the students.
