  1. I’m a teacher and I was having a look at the activities before recommending them to my students. I cannot find the way to fill the gaps with the words proposed, so I was wondering if it works properly or if it’s me!!! Thanks.

  2. The answer to the first question is “news” when you click to reveal the answer – but the word “news” is not in the list of words you provide for the gap fill.
