“Wheel to Wheel” Short Story

Posted by Speakeasy News > Tuesday 12 December 2023 > Ready to Use

This B1-level short story was written by an American teenager. It would fit in well with a theme on the Paralympics. Activities include comprehension, written expression and practise of “used to” and comparatives and superlatives.

Vocabulary and structures

  • preterite
  • would (past habit and conditional)
  • past perfect
  • used to
  • comparatives and superlatives
  • sports (athletics)

This would be a great introductory activity before having pupils participate in our creative-writing competition on the theme  of sport.
