We asked our students to vote for the play they would like to read by William Shakespeare. We carried out this opinion poll with the help of riddle.com.
They have voted for The Midsummer Nignt's Dream. It can be read online or downloaded as a book or as an audio book on english-e-books.net , and we also created a unit for this on clilstore.
We are continuously expanding the materials for reading comprehension and language practice on LearningApp.org.
Students voted for the reader they would like to read together. The winning one was The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde. During the teacher training session we compiled teaching materials for working on this text.
We worked in four groups and focused on four types of activities:
-pre-reading tasks for dealing with the author and the age the book was written in.
-reading comprehension and language-related activities
- post-reading activities
Interactive exercises about Oscar Wilde created with LearningApps.org
Interactive exercises about The Canterville Ghost.

During the 1st student exchange, students shared a classical and a contemporary author with their peers with special view to one of their works. We chose authors whose works can be found in English so that we could work with the text as well.
We launched a series of activities based on the extracts we had chosen.
The extracts we worked with can be found here, where students can use a built-in multilingual dictionary to check unknown words:
Cervantes: Don Quijote
Balys Suoga: Forest of the Gods
Karinthy Frigyes: Please, Sir!
Mevlana: Solomon and the Hoopoe
Janko Polic Kamov: The Beard
