Learning objects Languages online: Indonesian section 32: modes of transport

TLF ID M009704

This set of ten interactive activities from the Languages online resource helps students practise basic vocabulary for 12 different modes of transport. The key language points are asking how you travel to a place, saying the transport you use and asking when a train departs (using 24-hour time) and, from a cultural perspective, Indonesian modes of transport are featured. Pronunciation and word-matching drills are followed by more challenging games and quizzes - one of which can be completed by two players competing against each other. Instructions in English, immediate feedback and answers with translations are provided, as well as resources for teachers including additional printable activities and a Learning focus page.
