Integrating geography with ESL

A very short post on an online task I made in May just for fun. I have already said I make most of my lesson exercises/tasks in the platform Didactor, and this is one of them (I have over 1,700 so you may well expect a lot of posts like this one on this blog).

It looks simple enough; the student gets a list of words that need to be placed in their correct context. He can google the words before he starts or he can resort to pure guesswork, in which case he probably won’t score very high. Either way, the task involves lexical knowledge, factual geographic understanding, as well as reading comprehension. The task generator here is GAPS.
