Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Worksheet on Timetables and Opinions on School Subjects

Students need to extract information from a written text and a timetable in order to answer a set of true or false questions. There is also a translation activity as an extension (this is why there are lines under each statement). The worksheet would be a good scaffolding activity to support students with describing their own timetables.
