    I found this resource very useful for me as an English teacher. Every lesson offers tasks that can be used with students to develop both their language skills (reading, speaking and writing) and their critical thinking skills. Furthermore, in every lesson there is a number of tasks aiming to develop students' digital skills, like researching or creating surveys and presenting results, with steps and advice which help teach digital literacy with confidence.
